May 7, 2021
Be is excited to announce two new senior executive appointments.
Liam Mayo has been appointed as new Chief Executive of Be and Dr Amanda Clacy is the new Vitality Village Manager.
Liam Mayo has extensive national and international community sector experience, became a Board member of Be in June last year and recently led the Sunshine Coast Council Community Planning and Development department.
Dr Clacy joined Be last year to take on the Community and Wellbeing Program Architect role following two years with the Sunshine Coast Mind and Neuroscience Thompson Institute where she managed the Alliance for Suicide Prevention.
Commenting on the appointments, Be Chair Tim Robson said it was an exciting period of growth and opportunity for the organisation and Liam and Amanda will play key roles in Be’s strategic direction.
“We’re delighted to officially welcome Liam and Amanda to these pivotal roles.
“The Board has no doubt Liam will move seamlessly into the CEO role.
“Liam has a thorough insight and engagement with the organisation, its volunteers and our clients which is extremely advantageous.
“We are very excited to see Liam expand upon these contributions and lead Be forward for the betterment of our staff, volunteers and above all, our clients,” Mr Robson said.
“Amanda has made a strong contribution since joining us. We are extremely fortunate to have her passion and drive which will help shape and grow the Vitality Village which is set to open very soon.
“Vitality Village has enormous potential to take not just Be forward but other like-minded businesses that are joining us in collaboration. Amanda’s insights and strategic thinking will be critical in delivering our ambitious plans.”
Liam Mayo said he was honoured to be given the opportunity to lead Be into a new era.
“I am really excited to take on this new role, I thank the Board for the faith they have shown in me and I look forward to spending more time with our teams, volunteers and clients across Queensland.
“I’ve got a head start knowing the organisation well but I look forward to getting an even better understanding about the impact our programs and services can have on everyday lives.
“As CEO, I commit Be to deliver on our promise to make the lives of our clients the best they can be.”
Dr Amanda Clacy said she was thrilled to accept the new position. “I’ve seen first-hand the significant impact that a passionate and motivated community can have on disrupting major health issues when we work together with practitioners and professionals from a wide variety of backgrounds.
“I firmly believe that the Vitality Village and its commitment to collaboration between tenants and the community will result in significant health and lifestyle benefits for current and future generations of people not just here on the Sunshine Coast but also nationally and globally.”
Both Liam and Amanda have commenced in their roles at Be.
