Simon Collings, Chief Executive of the Resource Alliance, is to leave the organisation to take up a new position with the Global Village Energy Partnership (GVEP) International, a UK-based charity that seeks to reduce poverty through access to modern energy services.
Collings joined the Resource Alliance in 2003 from Oxfam, where he had been director of fundraising.
“Working with the Resource Alliance has been like a vocation for me. I am incredibly proud of the strides we have made in the last few years.
“The International Fundraising Congress is bigger and better than ever, and its sister event in the Global South, the International Workshop on Resource Mobilisation, is also going from strength to strength.
“And, of course, I am immensely proud to have been instrumental is setting up the Fundraisers Fund”.
Steve Thomas, co-chair of the Resource Alliance, said:
“Simon has provided exceptional leadership during his tenure as chief executive. He has given us a new vision and set us on the road to being the world’s leading advocate for civil society sustainability.
“He will certainly be missed not just by the staff and trustees of the Resource Alliance but by everyone who he has had contact with over the past six years.”
Collings, who blogs on UK Fundraising, will leave the Resource Alliance at the end of March.
