RSPCA chief executive officer update

December 21, 2016

ceoAfter more than three years as RSPCA South Australia’s dedicated CEO, next month we will say farewell to Tim Vasudeva. Tim has made the selfless decision to move back to Melbourne to support his elderly parents, both of whom have recently experienced health challenges. We are supportive of Tim’s decision, which has been made in the best interests of his family.

Tim has done so much for RSPCA, and the animals of South Australia, since he joined the organisation in May 2013. Over the last three and a half years Tim has showed 110% commitment, and the impact he has made has been truly remarkable.

As we farewell Tim, we welcome Paul Stevenson who commences as our new CEO on 16 January, 2017.  Paul is an experienced executive manager, and brings with him a range of relevant skills. Together with the board, Paul will lead our ongoing commitment to saving more lives and seeking innovative ways to care for every animal who needs our help.

Paul has described his appointment as “a great and humbling privilege”. He has been a passionate advocate of animal welfare throughout his life, starting at an early age as a junior member of RSPCA South Australia. He also has a 21-year-old rescue cat named Paris – who he describes as incredibly spoiled.

Paul will commence his new position in January.

    Tim, you have made a great champion for all animals and worked tirelessly for their welfare. You have really helped the RSPCA cause in SA and we will miss your enthusiasm and hard work. Best of luck in Melbourne with your family. and most of all, thank you.
