NFP CEO Gets The NOD

The Chief Executive of a South Australian Not for Profit has won the top award in the Equity Trustees’ inaugural CEO Awards for Excellence in 2002.

Leigh Garrett who heads up Offenders Aid and Rehabilitation Services of South Australia (OARS) won the award for most outstanding CEO for delivering service excellence, enhancing the organisation’s image and achieving partnership success.

OARS is a non-government welfare agency which provides a range of support services to offenders and their families. These services assist offenders to rehabilitate themselves and avoid re-offending.

OARS is funded by various Federal and State Government grants, and delivers services using a mixture of salaried and volunteer staff.

The Chief Executives of 20 charities, foundations and community groups were finalists in the Not for Profit sector announced last week.

The awards were initiated by Equity Trustees, one of Australia’s leading funds managers to the nation’s charities for more than 100 years.

There were a total of 76 nominations for the awards. They were received from every state.

The Managing Director of Equity Trustees, Mr Don Christie, said that the company had initiated the awards in order to recognise the tireless efforts in the charitable sector of Australia’s most outstanding, but largely unrecognised, businessmen and women.

The New CEO award (in their first year) went to Mary Wooldridge from the Foundation for Young Australians.

The Innovation Award went to Tony Pitman from Oz Child: Children Australia.

Cannon Howard Dillon of Anglicare NSW and Patrick McClure of Mission Australia in Sydney were the joint winners of the Lifetime Achievement Award.

The award ceremony was held at the Grand Hyatt in Melbourne.
