Important announcement - CEO transition at Accounting For Good

Kirsten Forrester - CEO

We hope this message finds you well. We are writing to share an important update regarding Accounting For Good’s leadership.

Accounting For Good has proudly been dedicated to serving the not-for-profit sector since 1997. Our journey has been one of continuous growth and development, and it is with great excitement and gratitude that we announce a significant transition in our leadership.

After 15 years with Accounting for Good, including 7 years as CEO, I have decided to move on. From 1 December, Carol Tran and Paula Chegwidden will jointly take up the role of co-CEO. Carol and Paula have been with AFG since 2018 and will be known to many of our clients. I am delighted to be succeeded by two people who share the values and culture of AFG and know the NFP sector and our services so well.

I have had the privilege of working alongside a remarkable team and building Accounting For Good into the organisation it is today.

Together, we have expanded our reach and better served the incredible organisations, like yours that make such a profound impact in our communities.

With the growth and maturity of our business, I am confident now is a good time to hand over to the next generation of leaders who have been instrumental in our success. This CEO transition to two highly valued, long-term senior members of our team represents a strategic move to ensure the continued excellence of our services and the sustainability of our commitment to the not-for-profit sector.

Rest assured, our mission of supporting not-for-profit organisations remains unwavering. Our team will continue to provide the same level of dedication, expertise, and personalised service that you have come to expect from Accounting For Good.

Carol, Paula, and I are working together to facilitate a smooth transition of leadership. Our priority is to ensure that this change is seamless and that it feels like ‘business as usual’ for you.

We are grateful for the trust you have placed in Accounting For Good and are excited about the possibilities that lie ahead under new leadership. We believe this transition will strengthen our ability to serve you and all our clients even better in the years to come.

If you have any questions or concerns during this transition, please do not hesitate to reach out to our team. We value our continued partnership and are here to support you every step of the way.

Kirsten Forrester – Chief Executive
