Founder makes way for company talent
Founder and Creative Director of Human Ventures, Aleem Ali, has announced that he will finish in his current Executive role at the end of the year, but will continue to serve on the Board.
“It’s been an amazing journey,” stated Ali.
“To date, we’ve impacted more than 50 communities and 10,000 people and our work continues to bring positive and lasting change.”
Having been at the helm for close to 9 years, Ali believes that the time is right for him to pursue international development opportunities and is looking forward to maintaining close ties with the organisation as an active Board member.
“Human Ventures is strongly positioned to build on the leading work that we do throughout Queensland,” he said.
“Having just secured Triennial operational funding through Arts Queensland, and with burgeoning talent in the organisation, the future is very exciting.”
The Board of Human Ventures acknowledged Ali’s significant contribution, and was also pleased to announce an internal succession plan.
“Aleem has brought an incredible passion and energy to the organisation and the communities in which we work,” stated company Chairman, Rupert Bryce.
“Aleem’s belief and commitment to Human Ventures has enriched the lives of many young Australians, enabling them to realise their potential, build their confidence and overcome disadvantage,” Bryce continued.
“His ability to deliver positive outcomes for all our stakeholders has been widely recognised and greatly appreciated.”
Human Ventures appointed a General Manager to the Executive Management Team in July this year.
The General Manager, James Boreham, has extensive experience and expertise in finance and strategic business management, having worked for more than 18 years in banking and financial services.
“It’s not always necessary to look outside an organisation for key appointments,” noted Boreham.
“We have approached and been working with a number of key staff at Human Ventures who have demonstrated the commitment and talent to play a significant role in the organisation’s future.”
“And we are in a great position at Human Ventures to have experienced, energetic and highly regarded people in our ranks who can continue, enhance and build on Aleem’s work.”
Human Ventures will be releasing further detail about these appointments in the near future.
Human Ventures (Human) works with diverse communities and socially-responsible organisations to create innovative programs, products, and services that address problems such as poverty, social exclusion, and sustainability.
We achieve this through arts, community engagement, design and entrepreneurial practices.
