New Chapter for CCG

16 May 2022

The Board of Community College Gippsland (CCG) has announced today that long standing Chief Executive Officer Sue Geals will vacate the role in mid-July 2022. 

Sue’s CCG legacy began when she took up the role of Early Childhood Education Trainer in 2006. She took on a range of leadership positions within the organisation before commencing the CEO role in 2014. Here, Sue applied her broad knowledge to driving growth and returning the organisation to a sound financial position. 

Chair of the CCG Board, Ms Marianne Shearer, expressed the Board’s sincere thanks to Sue for her exceptional hard work and dedication in leading the organisation through a period of major policy and fiscal change.

“Sue can be justly proud of her many achievements in growing an organisation that is part of the community. From opening ECG College to taking 170 senior secondary student enrolments at three campuses. Ensuring a quality RTO that responds to local needs and extending our Learn Local delivery to provide skills for life and work,” Ms Shearer said. 

“Sue has also safeguarded CCG, our staff and students, especially through these recent difficult pandemic years,” added Ms Shearer. “We wish her well in her new role as CEO with The Centre Wangaratta.”

Ms Geals said the decision to leave the organisation to pursue the next chapter of her career was not an easy one and comes with very mixed emotions.  “CCG is an organisation with great heart and real-world impact,” Ms Geals said. “I will deeply miss my colleagues and friends with whom I have worked for so many years.  It has been an honour to lead a team of talented and dedicated people and with them creating a family-friendly workplace with work life balance,” Ms Geals said.

The Board is confident the organisation is well-positioned for growth and has commenced the process of recruiting a new CEO through a broad Executive search.
