The Community Trust of Southland (CTOS) has today announced the appointment of their new General Manager. Jackie Flutey, of Invercargill, will commence the role in February 2018.
“The Trustees are delighted with Jackie’s appointment and are very much looking forward to working alongside Jackie. She brings wide ranging experience to the role, an understanding of the philanthropic sector and has strong existing relationships with community and stakeholders” says Trust Chair, Margot Hishon.
Mrs Flutey is the current Manager of the ILT Foundation and has been in this role since 2015. Prior to this, Jackie worked at the Southern Institute of Technology for 15 years in a variety of management and administration roles.
CTOS has investments of $219 million and provides grants to the communities of Southland, Wakatipu Basin, Heriot and Tapanui. In 2016-17 the Trust approved $5.5 million to the CTOS community. “I am very much looking forward to taking on the challenge of this new role.
Working alongside the Community Trust, with grants for larger projects in my current role, I have gained a good appreciation of the work done by the Trust.
I look forward to the opportunity to expand my understanding of the needs of the wider CTOS community and the opportunities to provide benefit back to that community through this role.” says Mrs Flutey. Denis Woods has been the CTOS interim General Manager since June, following John Prendergast’s resignation as Chief Executive.
Mr Woods will continue in the role until Mrs Flutey begins in February.
