Sue Sharp will lead the charity’s day-to-day operations

The Royal Society for Blind Children (RSBC) has appointed Sue Sharp (pictured) as deputy CEO, moving from her position of director of services and people at the charity.

Ms Sharp will work closely with CEO, Dr Tom Pey, on the RSBC’s strategic operations and will take responsibility for the charity’s day-to-day running.

Speaking about Ms Sharp’s appointment, Dr Pey said: “I’ve worked closely with Sue for the last 15 years in a variety of settings. During this time, Sue has always put the service user first.”

“At the RSBC she has been a key figure in driving forward our ambition to support more visually impaired children and their families. I have no doubt that in her new role Sue will continue to make an even greater contribution to the lives of those we serve,” he added.

The RSBC highlighted that Ms Sharp has worked at national and international level for over 25 years in order to advance the independence of disabled people.

She has led the charity’s front line of community services, education and research functions for the last seven years.
