Chief executive appointed

Redress Scotland has appointed Joanna McCreadie as Chief Executive.

Joanna brings a wealth of management experience in the charity sector, and a strong track record in stakeholder engagement. She has worked for local authorities, national inspectorates and charities.  Having worked with children and families for much of her career, she joins Redress Scotland from the Gannochy Trust, which gives grants around £5 million a year to charities.

Deputy First Minister John Swinney said “I would like to welcome Joanna McCreadie to the role of Chief Executive at Redress Scotland. Joanna brings a wealth of senior experience from the charitable sector, and her expertise and commitment will help Scotland establish the high-level redress scheme survivors deserve.”

Redress Scotland’s Chair, Johnny Gwynne, said “Joanna will provide responsive and compassionate leadership in her role as Chief Executive. I look forward to working with her as we build an effective organisation that carefully considers applications for redress and earns the trust of survivors.”
