Serving as the Chief Executive Officer for the Youth Affairs Council of Victoria for the last 14 years, Georgie has returned home to Wellington to take on this role to lead the implementation of Wellington Community Trust’s new strategic vision, investment portfolio and granting framework.

The Trust was established in 1988 following the merger of TrustBank, has $65 million under funds management and distributes around $1.6 million to regional community projects each year.

Before moving to Australia, Georgie was the programme manager for the YWCA of Wellington and Hutt Valley for five years. Having planned her return home for almost five years, Georgie is delighted to be coming back to Wellington, to take up the exciting role of Chief Executive with the Wellington Community Trust – starting on August 21. “I love the vibrancy and heart of the Wellington region. I can’t wait to return and starting working again with the local communities and organisations.”

Ms Ferrari will start the position on 21 August 2017.
