Sue McCabe – new CEO of ​Philanthropy New Zealand

Nov 6, 2018 | News

Sue will be joining our Wellington-based team from the end of November.

Sue has a diverse professional and volunteering background spanning public, not-for-profit and private sectors. She has previously held not-for-profit Chief Executive roles, as well as public sector communication management positions.

She is actively involved in the community and voluntary sector. She is a co-founder and trustee of not-for-profit the Community Comms Collective; and co-founder and director of social enterprise The Good Registry.

Sue’s contribution to the community sector was recognised in 2017 when she was named a finalist in Westpac’s Women of Influence not-for-profit category. We are delighted to secure a Chief Executive with such a demonstrated commitment to our sector.

See more of Sue’s background on LinkedIn here.

I am certain that under her leadership, she will continue to strengthen PNZ’s vision of a ‘thoughtfully generous Aotearoa New Zealand’ and support our members to maximise the positive impact philanthropy has on New Zealanders.

Sue will take over from Tony Paine who has now left PNZ to head up AccessAbility/Imagine Better.

We look forward to welcoming Sue to the PNZ team, and introducing her to you in the coming months.
