The Board of Directors of the Maltby Centre has announced Normandie Wragg as the new Executive Director of the agency.
Wragg will step into the role on Monday, Aug. 14, 2023, and interim Executive Director Derek Evans will return to his position as Director of Finance and Corporate Services.
According to a release from the Maltby Centre, Wragg brings an “incredible wealth of knowledge and experience” to the organization. She has 25 years of non-profit experience, including 10 years as an Executive, eight [of which she served] as Chief Executive, and has displayed exceptional strategic leadership, successfully developing growth plans and implementing transformative change, the Centre shared. Her ability to work collaboratively with her team, community and funding partners to build agency support for vulnerable individuals and their families has earned her recognition as a leader in developing strong teams and sustainable organizations. Normandie left her role as CEO of Nugent, a large non-profit providing education, health, and social care, to return to Prince Edward County after many years in the UK. She is in the process of relocating to the Kingston area.
“Normandie joins us as a highly strategic, visionary, equity-minded, experienced leader,” said Sheila Kingston, President of the Maltby Centre Board of Directors. “Normandie will lead the dedicated and skilled Maltby team and build on our reputation as a high-quality, professional organization that cares deeply for the people we serve. Normandie’s ability to lead initiatives and achieve results through influence, empowerment, warmth, and collaboration sets her apart. Her passion for making a difference in the lives of children and youth with autism and mental health issues aligns perfectly with the Maltby Centre’s mission.”
Kingston noted that the Maltby Centre’s previous Executive Director left the organization in April of this year, and Derek Evans took over as Interim Executive Director. “Derek did an excellent job in leading the organization at a very challenging time and I want to thank him for his dedication and support,” she expressed.
For her part, Wragg is enthusiastic and eager to fill her new role.
“I cannot express how excited I am to be appointed as the Executive Director at the Maltby Centre,” she shared. “It is an incredible opportunity to work with an organization that is truly making a difference. I am eager to bring my passion, skills, and experience to this role and work collaboratively with the board, staff, partners, families, and the community to continue to create positive impact and outcomes.”
