Outgoing CFO Message – Harry Raymond Joseph
It’s with deep regret and sadness that I want to announce my decision to leave 180DC. I’ve had some of the best times in my role as the CFO at 180DC, and quite frankly I can’t think of a role I’ve held so far that even remotely comes close to the responsibilities I’ve been given here (this includes my real job at Barclays as an AVP in an elite asset class team). Through this opportunity, I’ve seen myself grow and mature into a global leader. I’ve had the privilege of working at several world renowned organizations, but I’m thoroughly awestruck by the experience I’ve had at 180DC so far. Of course, we have our difficulties, but the amount of impact and the potential to change the world at 180DC is truly non-paralleled.
Moving forward, I’m greatly pleased to announce Mary Condon as our next CFO. Mary’s been with 180DC for over 3 years, and has been absolutely exceptional in her role as the DBFM coordinating with the APAC branches. Mary has single-handedly raised over 11,000 AUD, which is close to total operating expense of 180DC last year! End of last year, Mary was promoted to DCFO and since has contributed many ideas that have helped the team move forward in strategic areas. I want to congratulate Mary on her role as the new CFO of 180DC and would like to request you all to provide the same cooperation and support to Mary that you all readily and generously extended to me.
Incoming CFO Message – Mary Condon
I couldn’t be more excited to be taking on the challenge of making 180 Degrees financially sustainable as the incoming CFO! The primary reason that charities and NFPs fail is due to being financially unsustainable, and we want to ensure that 180 Degrees is around for years and decades to come. For the finance team, that means helping 180 Degrees and each and every one of it’s branches, to have a constant and sustainable source of income. We know each branch does amazing work with their clients every single day and delivers amazing value to their clients, so why not be rewarded for the work that we do? This is why we ask for donations from clients. Being able to seek value from the services and the work that consultants do is the best way to transform 180 from a pro-bono organiztion, to one that recognises the high quality work we do and ask that clients also recognise that by providing contributions. We know this is new for many branches and a challenge we want to support branches to achieve, so you’ll be hearing a lot more from us this year, and hope that this is a task we can accomplish together!
