Centre for Social Impact Announces Appointment of New CEO
Wednesday, 12th October 2011 at 11:32 am

The Centre for Social Impact (CSI) has announced the appointment of Dr Andrew Young as its new CEO.

Dr Young, the current CEO of youth cancer group CanTeen Australia, will take over from current CEO Peter Shergold who will stay on in a part-time position as Macquarie Group Foundation Professor of Social Impact.

Fred Hilmer, Vice Chancellor of the University of New South Wales and Chair of the Centre for Social Impact said today, “I am delighted that CSI has been able to appoint such a fine successor to Peter Shergold. I have enormous confidence that Andrew has the energy, capacity and dedication to take CSI to the next stage of its journey.”

He will take over as CSI’s new CEO in mid-January 2012.

Peter Shergold, who has CEO of CSI for four years, welcomed the appointment of Andrew Young.

“After four years I’m delighted to be handing over the reins to such a dynamic and committed leader. I look forward to working closely with Andrew.”

Dr Young completed a PhD in engineering at the University of Adelaide before working as a consultant for Anderson.

He moved into the Not for Profit sector when he took up a role as head of marketing and fundraising for The Smith Family.

After four years with The Smith Family he was appointed Chief Executive Officer of CanTeen in 2004, winning the Equity Trustees’ Not for Profit CEO First Year Achiever Award in 2005.

During his time at CanTeen, Dr Young grew the organisation from 30 staff to nearly 100 and lifted turnover from $4.5m to over $22m.

According to CSI, Dr Young “has had a strong interest in increasing social impact both through and outside of his role at CanTeen. Building on discussions with CEO peers in other organisations, Andrew was a founding member of Emerging Leaders for Social Change – a group of emerging leaders with an interest in creating greater social impact through a stronger social sector and cross-sectoral collaboration.”
