Sue Porto to join Brandon as Chief Executive

We're very pleased to announce that Sue Porto will be joining us as our new Chief Executive this summer.

Sue will be coming from Bath-based charity St John’s Foundation. Since joining as their Chief Executive in 2015, she has led the development and implementation of a new strategy for the organisation. This has seen the expansion of St John’s range of services and income sources, enabling them to significantly broaden their reach.

Sue has an outstanding track record of leadership in the charity and public sectors, having spent five years as Chief Executive at national children’s literacy charity Beanstalk, as well as holding senior positions at The Prince’s Trust and Prison Service.

Sue said:
“I am very excited to be joining Brandon and look forward to getting to know the staff and trustees who work so hard day in day out, making such a remarkable difference to people’s lives. The work of Brandon aligns closely with my desire to help individuals achieve all that they wish for in life.

“Having had the pleasure of meeting some of the people they support and staff already, it is evident that Brandon delivers high quality impactful services and I look forward to working with you all to build on this success”.

Brandon’s Chair of Trustees, Bonnie Dean, said:
“We are delighted that Sue has agreed to join us here at Brandon. In addition to her professional expertise, Sue’s passion for the work that we do was instantly apparent to trustees, the people we support and staff who were involved in her recruitment process.

“We are confident that she will provide inclusive leadership and an innovative approach that will inspire our dedicated team of staff to continue to strive for our vision of enabling people we support to achieve their ambitions and live the lives they choose.”
