After 14 years’ service with Stepping Stone Projects, Kath Barlow is retiring from the position of Chief Executive at the end of November this year.

After a rigorous recruitment process, the Board of Trustees have appointed David Smith as the new Chief Executive. David joined the organistaion on 1 November, initially as Chief Executive Designate and will be taking the reins from Kath on 1 December after a hand-over period.

During Kath's tenure, the organisation has grown considerably and expanded the range of services offered to clients; whilst the organisation sends best wishes to Kath for her well-earned retirement, she will be greatly missed.

David has a wealth of social housing and support service experience, having spent over 30 years in the sector in Greater Manchester and London. This has included over 15 years responsibility for homeless, temporary accommodation and support in Oldham. He is delighted and excited to be leading Stepping Stone Projects and to working with colleagues to continue the organisation’s success.
