An exciting leadership change at Middlemore Foundation lights the way for continued and expanding support for our vital South Auckland communities, enabling them to grow, strengthen and thrive.
Margi Mellsop has been appointed our new CEO and she will take over the reins on 11 October from Trustee and acting CEO, Faye Langdon who has successfully led the Foundation through the transition period.
Margi comes to the role from The Fred Hollows Foundation NZ, where she worked as Engagement Director. She brings with her significant senior leadership and invaluable not-for-profit experience.
In these uncertain and challenging times - particularly for our vulnerable South Auckland communities and whaanau - it is crucial that we have a strong, visionary and empathetic leader at the helm.
Middlemore Foundation Chair, Nick Main, says the Board is delighted to appoint Margi who will continue to build on the excellent progress the Foundation has made under the leadership of acting CEO, Faye Langdon, and previous CEO, Sandra Geange.
“It was essential that we found an impactful leader to ensure our continued growth and innovation, while building on our increasing connections and partnerships with our communities and our donors,” says Nick.
He says “Margi has nearly 20 years’ experience with fundraising, communications and marketing leadership across the not-for-profit sector in very well-known New Zealand organisations. “Haere mai I runga I te tauraa nui o Awatea”
Margi has said “I have long admired the Middlemore Foundation and really looking forward to working alongside the team and its community partners and funders to continue delivering outcomes for Middlemore and the vibrant communities it serves”
