After almost six years on the Kids Under Cover Board and two and a half years as Chair, Colin Radford has stepped down from the Board. Current Director George Liacos has been appointed the new Chair of Kids Under Cover.
Under Colin’s leadership, the Board has focused on innovation, including the commencement of interstate expansion and the launch of the social enterprise Nestd. Colin has led the organisation to grow its impact in preventing youth homelessness, with more than 580 studios now live.
Kids Under Cover CEO Jo Swift said, “I’ve been privileged to work alongside Colin during his time on the Board. He has been a great leader of Kids Under Cover and I’m pleased to say will continue as a donor and trusted friend of the organisation.”
“I look forward to continuing to work with George and the rest of the Board in this exciting next chapter.”
George Liacos has served on Kids Under Cover’s Board since 2018 and is also a Director of the Nestd Board. With over 25 years of strategy, innovation and industry experience, George has become a highly sought-after public speaker and writer, sharing his insights and lessons-learned to audiences and readers around the world. His vibrant approach and an incredible insight into business, particularly not-for-profit and start-ups, makes him an incredible asset to the organisation.
