Cwmpas has appointed its new CEO, Bethan Webber, following the departure of Derek Walker.
Webber, who joins from Home-Start Cymru where she worked for four years as CEO, takes up the role in early May.
Cwmpas, formerly known as Wales Co-operative Centre, is a development agency working for positive change in Wales and across the UK. It is a co-operative, and its stated focus is on “building a fairer, greener economy and a more equal society, where people and planet come first”.
Welcoming Webber, Cwmpas described her as “a passionate advocate for social justice, equality and the power of community”.
It added: “Bethan brings experience from Home-Start, the civil service and a number of trustee roles. Working for UK and Welsh government, leading on a variety of policy areas from climate change to the early years, Bethan has also contributed to research on issues including community resilience and underrepresentation in political participation.”
Webber is a Welsh speaker who grew up in the slate mining community in north Wales. Outside of work she is a mum of three who enjoys being outside, walking and travelling.
