Sadly Dr. Sarah Thomas de Benitez will be stepping down from her CEO role at the end of the year, due to her family’s expedited relocation to Asia at the end of this year. In her time at the helm, Sarah has made an enormous contribution to the CSC: creating our 5-year strategy, building and bringing stability to the Executive team, spearheading the UN General Comment initiative, strengthening research, and beginning to place the organisation on a more even keel through diverse sources of funding.
We are sorry to see Sarah leave her role as CEO and we are delighted that she will continue to contribute to CSC’s work from her new location. We wish her well with her re-location and we are grateful that she has given us sufficient time to plan for and manage a smooth transition. The deadline for applications for the role has now passed.
