Farewell to Pam Rutledge

Farewell to Pam Rutledge

Fri Dec 22, 2017

This week we said au revoir and farewell to our Chief Executive Pamela Rutledge, with a morning tea at our Head Office at Sydney Olympic Park. Pam completes her time as Flourish Australia's Chief Executive at the end of this year.

We thank Pam for her passion and support over so many years. Pam’s commitment to people with lived experience of a mental health issue, their familes and carers is deep and inspirational. We have been inspired by Pam’s vision and leadership of Flourish Australia, but more broadly within the mental health sector in Australia and New Zealand, recognised by a TheMHS Exceptional Contribution Award this year.

We celebrated the amazing contribution Pam has made not only to Flourish Australia, RichmondPRA, Richmond Fellowship of NSW, but also over a lifetime of service in a wide range health, human services and public sector related roles - from her early days a social worker through to her role as Executive Director of the Office for Ageing in the NSW Government.

Thank you for everything you have done, and continue to do, to make the world a better place for everyone, Pam.

Mark Orr commences as Chief Executive of Flourish Australia on 1 January 2018.
