ECEC provider bestchance confirms departure of CEO
Melbourne based early education and care provider bestchance has confirmed that Chief Executive Officer Kevin Feeney tendered his resignation in late January and has since moved on from the organisation.
Mr Feeney joined bestchance as CEO in August 2011 and during his tenure oversaw the broadening of the range of services offered by the organisation to children and their families, expanding to include family day care and additional long day care services.
In addition to strengthening the range of care, Mr Feeney also supported the development of more extensive early childhood intervention support programs and workforce training opportunities through the bestchance RTO, as well as a transition to the Early Years Management model.
More recently, Mr Feeney worked with the Board to make a determination which ultimately saw the provider decide to cease offering Early Years Management services in selected Local Government Areas in Melbourne.
Commenting on Mr Feeney’s contribution, a spokesperson from bestchance said “During Mr Feeney’s eight year tenure, we have experienced significant growth and change while remaining committed to ensuring that we are meeting the needs of our community. We thank him for his service.”
The search for a new CEO has commenced and in the interim Chris Chronis will be the acting CEO of the group.
