Quarriers appoints new chief executive

Social care charity Quarriers has appointed Paul Moore as its new chief executive.

He joins the Scottish based charity from Action for Children, North of England, where he spent four years as strategic director.

Speaking of his new appointment, Moore commented: "Quarriers has made a significant impact on the lives of many people both here in Scotland and also in services delivered south of the border. I want to continue its good work and drive the charity forward."

Originally from Dumbarton in Scotland, Moore has a wealth of experience working with young people, holding previous senior positions in Cumbria Council as head of children services and as a group manager (children services) with Liverpool City Council.

During the latter he played a pivotal strategic role in Liverpool's bid for City of Culture acting as the social services advisor.

Moore, who also holds a postgraduate diploma in management studies, will use his previous experience in the field and from management to lead Quarriers in its development.

Moore takes over from Dr Phil Robinson who recently retired from Quarriers at the end of May 2010 after 17 years of service, with the latter 10 as CEO.
