Literacy charity has promoted Ginny Lunn, former director of programme development, partnerships and policy, to the position of c.e.o.
Lunn will take up her new position on the 1st June and replaces Sue Porto, who left the charity on 30th April to become c.e.o. of St. John’s Hospital in Bath.
Jamie Pike, Beanstalk chair of trustees, said: “Ginny has a wealth of experience gained across a range of organisations, which the board is fully confident will allow her to guide Beanstalk on its journey towards helping 18,000 children a year by 2018.”
Lunn started her career as a primary school teacher before joining Youthreach, an education charity in Ireland. On returning to the UK she joined The Prince's Trust, before taking up the role of UK programmes director at Save the Children.
She joined Beanstalk as a director in early 2015.
