International early childhood education and care (ECEC) provider MindChamps has appointed Gary Carroll Chief Executive Officer of its Australian and New Zealand business.


Mr Carroll, who previously led Australia’s largest for profit ECEC provider G8 Education, joins MindChamps with a mandate to continue to grow the Group’s network of services which currently stands at twenty six services across Sydney and Melbourne. 


MindChamps, founded by David Chiem in 1998 and headquartered in Singapore, is an international provider of ECEC services that offers a unique research based curriculum designed to help children discover their full potential.


It currently has operations in Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Myanmar and the U.S.A., as well as Australia, where it opened its first centre in 2017. 


“I have always believed that the MindChamps story is larger than any one of us. We are here for good and for good, and that’s why at MindChamps, we seek leaders who, at a certain stage in life, are aligned with this philosophy of contributing to this critical area of society,” David Chiem, MindChamps Founder, Executive Chairman and Global CEO shared.


“I am glad to announce that we have found that person who is aligned with MindChamps’ passion to lift standards in early childhood education and I am excited to welcome Gary Carroll to our global family.” 


“Having been involved with hundreds of early learning centres, I can truly say, now that I have experienced it firsthand, that MindChamps’ research-backed approach is truly a breakthrough, and I am honoured to be a part of this movement that is set to revolutionise early education,” said Mr Carroll. 


Mr Carroll has commenced his role as CEO Australia and New Zealand having spent one month in Singapore working alongside Mr Chiem and his team.
