Welcome to Fams CEO, Susan Watson

2 March 2022

The beginning of March is already upon us, and the year is off to a flying start with the commencement of Fams new CEO, Susan Watson.

Susan joined us on Monday and has hit the ground running. Let’s hand it over to Susan to tell us a little about herself.

Previous Experience

After starting my working life as a registered nurse, I moved into senior governance and stakeholder management roles. One of these roles was as CEO of the Sydney Drug Education and Counselling Centre, where I earned multiple nominations for sector awards and doubled the revenue of the organisation.

My most recent role as Managing Director of a large charity in the UK involved me leading an emergency pandemic program that delivered 27,000 meals to people in need. These roles built a wealth of experience in the not-for-profit sector working with young people, their families and in disability care across Australia and the United Kingdom.

I like….

Travel, yoga, reading, and shopping at my local markets.

I know…..

How to make dairy free food taste great

How to stay up on a stand-up paddle board!

In my free time….

I like going to the movies, stand-up paddle boarding, cross-country skiing, and walking in the countryside or on the beach

My goal at Fams….

Is to provide a clear vision, underpinned by simple process and a strong track record of frontline service delivery, which will enable our member organisations and entire sector to thrive.

I look forward to meeting you all either in person or virtually. Please feel free to contact me directly [email protected] or

Welcome to the team Susan!

Lastly, we would like to express our heartfelt thoughts for those staff members, services and clients who are impacted by the floods.

Please stay safe and take care of yourselves.
