YoungMinds promotes interim chief

Children's mental health charity YoungMinds has appointed interim chief executive Sarah Brennan, who was drafted in after the departure of the entire senior management team, on a permanent basis.

Former chief executive Barbara Herts left in December after a board-commissioned review into top-level management at the charity when all three of its senior managers quit within weeks of each other (Third Sector, 16 January).

The charity said that Brennan was selected to take the post after a highly competitive interview process.

Brennan joined YoungMinds as acting deputy chief executive in summer 2007. She previously worked as chief executive of young offenders charity Motivate and director of services at youth homelessness charity Centrepoint.

She said it was a great honour to be offered the post: “YoungMinds is in a fantastic position for further growth and development on a number of fronts,” she said. “I intend to build on that with the help of my colleagues.”
