Bev Lange resigns

Bev Lange has resigned as CEO of the Bobby Goldsmith Foundation (BGF).

Lange announced this afternoon she would step down from the role she has held for almost seven years once a successor has been found.

“I am proud to have been part of BGF’s rich history and proud that I’ve been part of a team that has delivered such extraordinary work and services to positive people,” Lange said in a written statement.

“The continued response to HIV by the organisations in our sector is exemplary, and I pay tribute to their commitment, skills and care.”
BGF President Martin Walsh thanked Lange for her service.

“On behalf of the Board of BGF, I would like to sincerely thank Bev for the vast amount of work she has contributed to the HIV sector in NSW through her work with hundreds of clients over the last six and a half years,” he said.

“Her work in developing new services and policies for PLHIV, improving the organisation’s operations and augmenting BGF’s funding are well known and much appreciated by the community.

“Bev has been an inspiration to many staff and volunteers within BGF as well as a highly credible public face of the organisation. Bev has few peers in terms of her profile across the sector and BGF wishes her well in making the transition to an equally significant role in the future.”

The recruitment process for the new CEO is now underway through Futurestep.

  1. Bev,
    thank you for your contributions to the GLBTIQ communities in such an important area as PLHIV. Be proud, BGF is an amazing organisation, and through your efforts, still strong. You have stood strong in a world where some avoid the difficult times. You have weathered the complaints of those that do nothing more than complain. Best wishes for the future.

  2. Bev, thank you for having the guts and fortitude to face the fact that none of your predecessors were prepared to deal with: an organisation set up specifically to provide financial support and care to people who were dying would sooner or later have to confront the reality that financial support for people living 30, 40 or 50 years after diagnosis is a whole different ballgame.

    The abject failure of the tiny mob of screeching queens who continually insulted and defamed you for having the courage to go there is possibly some consolation.

  3. Time for the trolls who have been wanting BGF and ACON closed to now step and run they place the way they say it should.

    C’mon boys ?

  4. Bev, i hope that your Stepping Down from your Duties at BGF lead to a Stepping UP, in both your proffesional and private Life~~~I wish you All the best~~
