The Front Project’s Founding CEO Stepping Down

After seven highly productive years, the Front Project’s founding CEO Jane Hunt is stepping down from her role as CEO to embark on a new challenge.

Ms Hunt is transitioning out of her role in the coming months to create the opportunity for the next CEO to be recruited.

She says of her decision: “The Front Project has been a career highlight, and it has been an extraordinary journey building an organisation from an idea to what it is now – a highly effective organisation creating systemic change in early learning to benefit children and families.

“I have been fortunate to work with a talented team, a strategic Board and a sector that cares deeply about children thriving in Australia. Alongside our colleagues in Government, research and policy, we have demonstrated our impact time and again.

“As I announce my decision to take on a new challenge, an incoming CEO will be recruited, and I look forward to supporting the organisation to find a great person in a role that I can attest is stimulating and dynamic.

“I am confident that the incoming CEO, the Front Project team, collaborators and colleagues across the eco-system will continue to centre the voices of children and shape the system with a focus on equity and quality.” While it is sad to say goodbye to our founding CEO, it is important to take pause and recognise how much we have collectively achieved over the past seven years and are pleased that we can continue towork with Jane during this transition phase as she provides support to the team and the Board while the next CEO is recruited.

So, as we say goodbye to Jane, the Front Project looks forward to watching Jane as she takes on her next challenge and continues to make positive change everywhere she goes. To all our supporters, and everyone who is a part of the early learning system, the Front Project we look forward to working with you as we continue our work to improve the early learning system, ensuring it works for all, especially those experiencing disadvantage.
