Published on

Libby Craft, the long-serving Chief Executive of UnitingSA, is stepping down after leading the Not For Profit for more than a decade.

Ms Craft has been with UnitingSA for more than 25 years and was appointed in the top job in January 2006.

Chair of UnitingSA and UnitingSA Housing, Gael Fraser, paid tribute to Ms Craft and her contribution, in particular to the organisation’s growth and development.

“UnitingSA’s team has grown from 350 to more than 1,000 carers, practitioners and staff,” Ms Fraser said.

“She has led the growth and development of our aged care services, the growth of our mental heath services and the establishment of Wesley Social Enterprises.”

UnitingSA will be in the hunt for a new Chief Executive immediately, with hopes to facilitate a smooth transition over the next six months.
