Wolverhampton Voluntary and Community Action has a new Chief Executive Officer.
Sharon Nanan-Sen has worked at WVCA for 8 years supporting local organisations and groups to access millions of pounds worth of funding to develop and grow their charities and social enterprises.
Before joining WVCA, Sharon worked in Local Government for over 25 years; her roles included Strategic Lead for Services for Young People in Children’s Services and General Manager, Adult Services.
Sharon said: “This is a very exciting new role. We have experienced, skilled and enthusiastic staff and I am looking forward to working with them as one team to promote what we do. We will also continue to support, deepen our relationship and collaborate with our partners in the Voluntary and Community Sector, University of Wolverhampton, Local Authority and the NHS to make sure that together we can deliver the services that Wolverhampton people need and want. I am particularly keen that our young people have opportunities to realise their full potential and this is something that I will be working on together with the WVCA Board going forward.”
The Co-Chairs of the WVCA Board, Simeon Greene and Pamela Cole-Hudson added; “We would like to thank the outgoing Chief Executive, Ian Darch for his time, commitment and achievements over 18 years of service. During his tenure, Ian has championed our sector and its role, forged relationships with partners and brought in significant funding for the VCS. We wish him all the very best for the future.
We are delighted to welcome the new Chief Executive, Sharon Nanan-Sen who brings a wealth of diverse work experience in both the VCS and Local Government over many years. We look forward to working together with Sharon to drive and deliver excellent support and services with our partners and for our city.”
