The Board of Amicus Community Services is delighted to advise the appointment of Kevin Feeney as our new CEO.
Kevin commenced his role at Amicus on Monday September 19, with a short handover from and then replacing our interim CEO Ken Marchingo AM from the end of September.
Kevin has twenty years experience leading for-purpose organisations across a wide range of programs, including disability, education, employment, health and community services sectors.
Most recently, Kevin has spent nine years as CEO for Bestchance Child Family Care, a large early years and community services provider working with diverse communities across Melbourne and Geelong. Prior to Bestchance, he was General Manager of Business Services and Social Housing at EACH for 11 years, a national community services provider.
Kevin’s experience working with some of the most vulnerable and at-risk people in our society and solid commercial business acumen will be an incredible asset for Amicus, as we move into recovery and reset of the organisation after more than two-years of unpredictable pandemic disruption.
The Amicus Board believes that Kevin’s desire to make a significant and lasting impact in the lives of others, delivered with a compassionate and ethical approach based on respectful, values and an opportunity for all to contribute, will support a positive and proactive organisation as we work together with participants, families and staff.
The Amicus Board would like to thank and acknowledge interim CEO Ken Marchingo AM for his leadership and professional contribution to the organisation during the past few months; whilst the recruitment of a new CEO to replace our former long-term and accomplished CEO Ann-Maree Davis was undertaken.
