Jennifer Jones-Rigby MBA, PGCE, CMgr, MCMI, FRSA

I am delighted to announce the appointment of Jennifer Jones-Rigby as CEO for Bethel Health and Healing Network. Jennifer commenced the post on the 5th July 2022 and is based at their Head Office in Balsall Health in Birmingham.

The Board conducted a rigorous selection process in which internal and external candidates were assessed for the role.  There were several exceptional candidates for the role, Jennifer stood out both with her 25 years’ experience in the not-for-profit sector and her 15 years’ experience as a Senior Leader working within Health and Wellbeing, locally, nationally and internationally and her last post as Chief Operating Officer for Health Exchange.  Having achieved her MBA at Aston Business School, she brings with her both a wealth of hands-on experience leading organisations and the theoretical and foundational principles and tools to support business growth.

Jennifer has had to hit the ground running and is spending the first few months listening and hearing from the Board, Senior management Team, Staff Volunteers and Service Users. She picks up the reigns from Tim Tranter who stepped in as Interim CEO for a short while, whilst a new CEO was recruited.  Our thanks are extended to him for helping to bring Jennifer up to speed in a short amount of time.

The Board, would like to thank the Senior Management Team, Staff and Volunteers for supporting each other and continuing to work hard, to provide much needed services in our communities, whilst experiencing a time of organisational change and transition.

Jennifer brings with her experience of building and working with several partnerships across the City of Birmingham and beyond, is already using her significant experience and inclusive approach to further build and support the teams work collaboratively. This will enable growth into new areas and new service development.

I am sure you will join with me in wishing Jennifer every success in her new role.
