Sister charities Age UK Oxfordshire and Action for Carers (Oxfordshire) are delighted to welcome Paul Ringer as their new Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
Paul Ringer joins the charities from a role as Interim CEO of Riding for the Disabled UK and brings a background in social care and a decade of senior management experience in the charity sector. With his proven track record of leadership in high-quality regulated health and social care services, alongside influencing, campaigning and profile-raising work, he is poised to lead the charities in their missions to support people to live life to the full.
Paul Ringer replaces Penny Thewlis who has been instrumental in the development and growth of the organisations over the past 23 years, including 7 years as CEO. After a considerable tenure, Penny Thewlis has stepped down with a plan to put the charities’ missions of living life to the full into practice.
