Adam Chugg, 3VA’s Chief Executive Officer, will be leaving the charity in December to take up a new role as Town Clerk at Seaford Town Council.
Adam has been CEO of 3VA since April 2008. Over this period he has been fully committed to supporting the Trustees, the staff and members of 3VA and through his leadership and by working closely with our partners, and stakeholders, has improved the lives of others across our area by building the strength of the voluntary and community sector.
During his tenure Adam has continued to build 3VA’s financial resilience and sustainability whilst developing our place in the communities of East Sussex, Lewes, Eastbourne and Wealden in a way that means that 3VA is in excellent shape going forward. More recently, Adam has been instrumental in supporting the delivery of the local response to the challenges of Covid at the same time managing the impact on 3VA.
“It has been an incredible honour to lead 3VA, and I think the fantastic response we have made to the challenges of Covid, and to support and work with our local sector, shows our strength, relevance, and connectedness that stands us in good stead for the future.”
Gary Walsh, Chair of 3VA’s Board of Trustees said:
“I would personally like to thank him for his resilience during these times. On behalf of myself and the 3VA Trustees I would like to congratulate Adam on his appointment to Seaford Town Clerk and to thank him for his 12 and a half years as Chief Executive of 3VA.”
3VA’s Board of Trustees have approved that Jenny Watson and Miriam Wilkinson will jointly provide the Interim Chief Executive role for 3VA whilst the recruitment of a permanent appointment of Chief Executive is made. The Trustees have complete confidence in Jenny and Miriam that they will provide stability and continuity for the organisation in the interim.
