Ramamurthy to step down from helm of CWC
November 16, 2018
Alex Ramamurthy is to stand down as chief executive of The Care Workers Charity (CWC) with effect from 30th November 2018, having led the organisation through a two-year transformation period which resulted in CWC winning Change Project of the Year and being shortlisted for Charity of the Year at the 2018 Charity Times Awards.
Alex will join the board as trustee and will support CWC through a six-month transition period in a part-time consultancy role, continuing to provide the benefit of his network and experience across the sector with a focus on nurturing entrepreneurial activity and partnerships.
Alex will be moving on to his own startup venture; a booking platform which will allow care homes to rent out their communal space to host adult day clubs. The business will bring older adults from the community into care homes addressing loneliness and social isolation, whilst generating new revenue streams for care homes.
Following a thorough search process led by Ben Westcott at Compass Executives, Richard Muncaster will succeed Alex as chief executive. Richard brings more than 20 years’ experience in the voluntary sector, leading teams in a variety of income generation, marketing, programme delivery, volunteering, communications, policy and campaigning roles.
