It is my melancholy duty on behalf of FAME to say farewell to Chery Hill, the Company’s much loved and respected CEO, who retired 30 June 2016 after over 25 years as the CEO of FAME, and before that Earth Sanctuaries Foundation (which became FAME).
Cheryl will be greatly missed by all FAME stakeholders; its donors, staff, the managers of conservation projects FAME supported and its Board.
Cheryl’s sudden and unexpected loss of her husband, Geoffrey, also an employee of FAME and a significant contributor to FAME’s successes, was a devastating loss. With many family commitments and without her Geoffrey, Cheryl elected to retire to focus her attention on her family at this most challenging of times.
Cheryl came to FAME from Earth Sanctuaries Foundation and Greenpeace and has spent her working life supporting important causes, particularly native wildlife conservation. Cheryl is one of those unique people who have actually made a difference that benefits us all.
Cheryl, as FAME’s CEO, was a very passionate, knowledgeable and dedicated person. She was very outcome focused in relation to FAME’s native wildlife conservation projects, pursuing value for money from FAME’s investments.
Accordingly, Cheryl’s retirement from her full-time duties as CEO of FAME is a significant loss for FAME, its donors and its Board. Cheryl, as FAME’s CEO, will be greatly missed.
On behalf of all FAME’s donors, staff and directors, I sincerely wish Cheryl all happiness and good health in the future. I’m sure I speak for all when I say; we look forward to her appointment as a Life Member of FAME and hope and anticipate Cheryl will frequently attend FAME functions in the future.
