“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to continue to work with the team and volunteers of Coast Community Connections in my new role as CEO,” Mr Davis said.
“My focus will be to continue to develop the exceptional programs and services the organisation has in place, as well as look for new opportunities to lead the organisation in a changing environment that reinforces our vision to keep locals connected to their community,” he said.
