Prue Sulicich has been appointed to the role of Foundation Broken Hill Executive Officer.
The appointment marks the end of an era for Foundation Broken Hill, with the departure of Foundation Manager Kimberley Fell after ten years.
The Foundation was established in 1999/2000 and Kimberley has been a lynchpin for the organisation since 2008 - initially in financial services, but then moving into the management role in 2009.
Kimberley gave notice to the Foundation Board in 2018 of her intention to leave to dedicate more time to her other business interests.
“Probably no one has been more pivotal to the success of the Foundation in that time than Kimberley,” Foundation Chair Vince Gauci said.
“Particularly in areas such as the Back-to-School-Vouchers, the highly successful Business Development Program, property management and Skillshare education grants - in addition to extensive community representation and working closely with business and community funding applicants.”
Kimberley said she was proud of her ten-plus years at the Foundation and what the organisation has achieved during that time.
The Foundation Capital Fund now stands at more than $2 million and more than $1 million has been contributed to the local community.
“I am still a strong believer in the objectives of Foundation Broken Hill and will continue to support the organisation where possible,” Kimberley said.
