Jo Land appointed interim CEO at Avenues Group
Jo Land has been appointed as Interim Group Chief Executive at Avenues, following the retirement of Steve James after 25 years.
Jo has worked for Avenues since October 2000, and was previously Group Deputy Chief Executive, in addition to her role as Director of Organisational Development. She brings many years of cross-sectoral experience.
She said: “I’m delighted to be able to lead Avenues while we continue our search for a new permanent Chief Executive, who shares our values and commitment to improving disabled people’s experience of life. Steve James gave Avenues incredible service and leadership, and always put people first. We’re determined to build on this legacy, and continue to do the very best we can for those we support, their families and of course our extraordinary staff.”
Jo will continue to oversee organisational development for the group in her interim role.
