2017 marks the 20th year of Matrix on Board being created, and over that time the company has remained steadfast in supporting the back office and infrastructure of nonprofits and social enterprises while they pursue their social purpose.
Financial management services has been the backbone of Matrix on Board since the beginning, and the decision two years ago to focus on the success of this service - and change the name to Accounting for Good - is now bearing fruit.
After a 16 year partnership at Matrix and now AFG, Nonie Wales and Morri Young have decided to work together in a new start-up to build and nurture software which solves problems for nonprofits and social enterprises. Nonprofit Support Pty Ltd is a new company which will focus on practical and achievable Software as a Service solutions for nonprofits to manage their business. BoardEffect, the Board portal solution is the first Software as a Service product within Nonprofit Support, and we plan to grow this business.
It is now time to ask someone who knows Accounting for Good as well as we do, and who has the intelligence, experience and skills - as well as a love for the nonprofit sector - to take Accounting for Good to the next phase.
We are delighted to announce that Kirsten Forrester will commence as the CEO from 23 January 2017.
Kirsten has a distinguished career in managing the business side of nonprofits, including St Vincent de Paul Society, SDN Children’s Services and NCOSS. Kirsten, Morri and Nonie have worked together since 1999, and Kirsten has been a senior manager in the company since 2009. We are excited about this next stage in our collaboration.
From 23 January 2017, Nonie and Morri will remain as Directors, with Morri moving into the role of Chairman of AFG. As the Board of Directors, we will work closely with Kirsten to support her as the CEO and to provide strategic guidance to ensure the company continues its successful trajectory.
From now until 23 January 2017, Kirsten and Morri will be co-CEOs of Accounting for Good to ensure a smooth transition.
We look forward to sharing a bright and successful future for AFG with you.
