Announcement: RSB Executive Director resignation

Glenn Rappensberg, Executive Director, The Royal Society for the Blind (RSB)  has resigned and will leave the organisation on 19th May.

Over the last 7 months, Glenn has made a significant contribution to the organisation; strengthening the Executive Leadership team and preparing the RSB for its transition to the NDIS and My Aged Care funding models.

Glenn has also overseen the expansion of our Low Vision Clinic in regional locations and enhanced our position as the premier provider of Guide and Assistance Dogs in South Australia.

As a resident of the Fleurieu region, Glenn has been presented with a  rare opportunity to become the Chief Executive Officer of the Alexandrina Council, a role that will allow him to pursue his passion for his local community.

While sad to see Glenn leave, the RSB would like to thank him for his outstanding contribution and wish him well in his new endeavours.

The Board of Directors is working closely with the Executive Leadership Team to manage the transition and, a recruitment strategy for a new outstanding leader will be launched in due course. In the interim, Mr Robert Depold, Deputy Executive Director of the RSB, will act as Executive Director.

Whilst change has been a regular event throughout the RSB’s 133 history, our commitment to deliver the very best service to the blind and vision impaired community has always remained constant. That will never change.
