GMCVO announces new CEO and repositioning of core business Following a strategic review, we have recently announced an upcoming change in leadership and organisational focus.
As a result of the repositioning, GMCVO will lose two senior posts and go forward under new leadership. The current Chief Executive Alex Whinnom will be replaced later this summer by new Chief Executive John Hannen, and Gary Millar in a new role, Chief Operating Officer.

Following the review, GMCVO has also decided to take the bold step of repositioning its core business from VCSE representation to enabling practical change. This will take the form of investment in social enterprises, community business and community-owned assets, aiming to reach people and places who are economically marginalised and to work with those who share GMCVO’s aims. GMCVO will continue to work with commissioners and funders as an accountable body to secure resource for local VCSE organisations and will continue to run the St Thomas Centre in Ardwick.
