Chief Executive: Rob Gallagher
Rob worked in a number of management roles across the third sector in Glasgow and Edinburgh over the last decade, before being appointed CEO of GNWCAB in March 2019. Although this is his first role in the advice sector, Rob has led organisations and projects committed to achieving positive change for communities, and equality and inclusion for people from a variety of backgrounds. Most recently, Rob was CEO of the Edinburgh Remakery, an award winning social enterprise that promotes and provides repair and reuse education and services, and refurbishes unwanted IT equipment and furniture as a means of reducing waste and helping people save money. Prior to that Rob was a programme manager for Impact Arts, a national community arts charity that delivers creative projects in some of Scotland's most deprived areas. Rob has specific experience in designing and delivering projects aimed at helping people achieve positive outcomes in their lives, be it employment, education and training, or projects which help improve family and community resilience to better improve opportunities for children and young people. Rob sits on the board of trustees for LEAP sports, a charity which promotes and supports leadership, equality, and participation in sports across Scotland.
