Appointment of Executive Director

The Board of Saint Vincent's is pleased to announce the appointment of Wayne Williams as Executive Director.

Wayne was born and raised in Newfoundland and graduated from Memorial University in 1988 with degrees in science and education. He taught high school for several years in Labrador City and then joined the Salvation Army's social services organization, the largest non-governmental provider of social services in Canada. His work took him from small communities in Newfoundland to head a large service centre in Fort McMurray.

He began working in long term care in 2001 when he was appointed Executive Director of the Salvation Army Dinsdale Personal Care Home in Brandon, Manitoba. This was followed by assignments in the same capacity at the Salvation Army Winnipeg Booth Centre and the Salvation Army Lakeview Manor in Moncton. His current position is with the Humber Valley Complex, Deer Lake Manor, Deer Lake, Newfoundland and Labrador.

To say the least, Wayne brings with him a wealth of knowledge and wisdom. You will find Wayne to be engaging, personable and genuinely interested in the residents and those who support them whether through employment, volunteer service or family support. And of course being a native of Newfoundland, Wayne has a wonderful sense of humour.

We look forward to Wayne joining us in mid-May. We will let you know the exact date when it's finalized.

Barry Allen,
Board Chair
