Ahead of the Christmas rush: the fourth of four short emails from LifeLine Projects

A new phase for LifeLine...

Hans Baird has announced his intention to step down as the Chief Executive Officer of LifeLine Projects at the end of this year.

We really appreciate the contribution that Hans has made over his five year tenure, in particular the commercial expertise and skills he has brought to the LifeLine team. Hans is exchanging life in the UK for a whole new adventure in Nigeria.

We wish him and his family all the very best and look forward to hearing from him from time to time as our relationship continues across the continents.

Nathan Singleton will assume the role of LifeLine's Chief Executive
on January 1st 2018.
Nathan has been enjoying a handover period during the last couple of months. He will lead us on the next part of the journey in our vision and mission.
Nathan says: "We sometimes describe our nature as akin to a stick of rock. No matter where you slice through us, you will find written that our core value is relationship. I first met Hans on a visit to Trinidad many years ago. I was struck by his business acumen and determined then to learn from him. I was delighted when a few years later he arrived at LifeLine, ready to roll his sleeves up and serve our community. It has been an honour to serve under him and I am thankful for the foundation that I can continue to build upon."

Why we do what we do

Nathan continues "Many of our employees join LifeLine because they want to make a difference to the community around them. I would be one of them. But this is because I am a product of those who have mentored and journeyed with me. This motivates me to do the same for others.

Journeying together

"We will march on with determined commitment to impacting the lives of individuals and to providing excellent solutions to local problems in the realms of education, childcare, family life, health issues and to sharing these models of best practice with others who want to work in partnership. 

"In presenting solutions that we have found to work, we do not, however, intend to shift our attention from practice to those who simply theorise about policy, but rather to acknowledge that we are a 'do and think tank' - those who are deeply involved in authoring and uncovering solutions to real issues. Our desire is to equip others to do the same.

"I look forward to working more closely with you in 2018 and hope that as we work together we might make a real difference for the individuals and communities in our locality."
