New CEO for Australian Charities Fund
Wednesday, 22nd May 2013 at 3:47 pm

Long time Chief Executive Officer of the Australian Charities Fund, Ted Kerr is stepping aside – and the workplace giving Not for Profit has announced the appointment of its new CEO.

Ted Kerr has held the position for the past four years and will hand over to newly appointed Jenny Geddes in July.

The ACF describes itself as a Not for Profit social enterprise whose vision is to see significant social impact through employers and charities working together.

“After four years in the role, I’ve decided to step aside from the day to day responsibilities of CEO. However, I intend to continue in an active role with ACF as a non-executive director,” Kerr said.

“Jenny Geddes has worked for more than 20 years in consumer electronics, public relations, new media and IT. Much of her career has been with Sony Australia Limited where she held senior roles in corporate communications, brand marketing and public relations.”

Kerr said Geddes has also been practically and strategically involved in the success of the renowned Sony Foundation.

“With these skills and background being critical to the success of ACF’s strategy of seeking the widespread growth of workplace giving, the ACF Board warmly welcomes Jenny to our team and is looking forward to working with her.

“Since its inception in 2002 ACF has helped well over 100 organisations set up and grow workplace giving programs. This has resulted in over $90 million in donations to a wide range of charities.”

The Australian Charities Fund Chair Tony Harrington also welcomed Geddes to the fund.

“On behalf of the ACF Board and our charity and employer partners, I would like to sincerely thank Ted for his ongoing dedication and contribution to ACF,” Harrington said.

“Through Ted’s tireless and passionate work we have seen significant growth in awareness of, and participation in, workplace giving.”
