The founding CEO of Financial Literacy Australia (FLA), Rebecca Glenn, has resigned from the organisation effective 27 November 2015.
She will take up a position in the corporate sector where she will continue to work in the financial literacy space.
The Board of FLA expressed its gratitude to Rebecca for her leadership through the start-up years of the not-for profit organisation.
Chairman of the FLA Board Paul Clitheroe AM said, “Rebecca has been instrumental in setting up this company and securing broad support for its work.
“She has overseen the establishment of the FLA Grants Program which has already committed almost $2 million in funding to promising financial literacy projects and research.
“She also led the development and execution of the national financial literacy awareness campaign, MoneySmart Week. Her passion and her ability to bring supporters from all sectors together around a common cause was a key factor in the success of the Week.
“We’re delighted that Rebecca will continue to work in financial literacy and we look forward to continuing an association with her in her new position”
Financial Literacy Australia has commenced a search for a new CEO to build on its achievements so far and guide the organisation through its next stage of development.
