Imelda Glackin will be stepping down as CEO from her role at Martlets in 2022. Imelda has worked at Martlets for nineteen years, with the last seven years as CEO. Imelda has successfully overseen the organisation through considerable change, most recently to operate throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
Juliet Smith, Chair of Trustees, comments:
‘Imelda has been a force of nature as an inspiring leader and ambassador, admired and respected, not only in the local community of Brighton and Hove, but also throughout the hospice movement nationally. We have been privileged to have her as our CEO’.
‘It will be difficult to leave but having positioned Martlets as an organisation providing the very best care and support to those with a life-limiting condition, this is very much the right time for someone else to now lead Martlets to the next exciting chapter’.
Imelda will continue in her role as Chief Executive until mid-March and it is very much ‘business as usual’ until then.
Recruitment for a new CEO will commence shortly.
