Scotland’s largest visual impairment organisation has announced the appointment of a new Chief Executive.
Mark O’Donnell will take up the role of Chief Executive of Royal Blind and Scottish War Blinded, which are together known as Royal Blind Group, at the end of July.
Mr O’Donnell, currently Chief Executive of Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland, will take over from Richard Hellewell, who will be retiring this Summer after 10 years at the helm.
With a background in health and social care in the charitable and public sectors, Mr O’Donnell joins the Royal Blind Group during a period of significant expansion. 150 jobs will shortly be created in Paisley at Royal Blind’s new care home for visually impaired older people and Scottish War Blinded’s activity and support centre. The new services will open in October this year.
