President Dr Sue Gordon and the Board of the Police and Community Youth Centres are pleased to announce that Mr David van Ooran will be taking on the role of chief executive.
David, who served as RSPCA WA chief executive since 2012, will commence with PCYC in August.
Dr Gordon said “David has a strong track record as an experienced leader having worked across public, private and not for profit sectors. His appointment comes at an important time in the ongoing evolution of PCYC.”
RSPCA President, Lynne Bradshaw AM, said that in the six and a half years since Mr Van Ooran joined RSPCA WA, the organisation had undergone considerable growth and development across all its different functions.
Dr Gordon said, “We are looking forward to working with David and building on the strong foundations we have at PCYC, set in place by our previous CEO Jock Gillespie, as it heads into its 78th year in WA.”
David said he is incredibly excited to be joining WA PCYC and working on improving the lives of young people.
He said, “The organisation is iconic. The Police and Community Youth Centres across Western Australia play an invaluable role in the community. Working with young people, they provide opportunities for participation in healthy and safe recreational activities and diversionary programs.”
