9 June – The Boards of Barwon Child, Youth & Family (BCYF) and Bethany Community Support (Bethany) have announced the appointment of Mr Grant Boyd as Chief Executive Officer of the new organisation that will be created by the merger of Bethany and BCYF.

Mr David McDonald, BCYF Board Chair and Mr Chris Bowly, Bethany Board Chair, said “they are delighted that Grant will take on the CEO role during this exciting time of growth and development of the two organisations”.

Mr Boyd will lead the merger transition process and will become the first CEO of the new organisation to be formed by June 2023.

Mr Boyd has been the CEO of Bethany for the past 13 years overseeing considerable change over that time. Mr Boyd said, “the process of planning the merger between Bethany and BCYF has been highly collaborative with a focus on increased benefit to clients, staff and the community”.

Mr McDonald said, “BCYF’s CEO Sandy Morrison, who did not take part in the recruitment process, remains committed to BCYF during the transitionary period and will be sharing his considerable experience in the transition”.
