July 06, 2016

Bec_20160706 We are pleased to announce the appointment of Rebecca Henson to the position of Reading and Literacy Development Manager, responsible for the Centre for Youth Literature (12-20) and Children and Family programs (0-12) at State Library Victoria.

Rebecca brings strong leadership ability and good strategic planning skills which she has developed working in educational publishing over a career spanning 20 years. Most recently this has been at Cengage Learning Australia and Macmillan Education Australia where she was Publishing Editor and Senior Publisher, respectively.

Rebecca has led project teams ensuring that project and business objectives are met and helped team members build skills and develop their capacity. Her experience in educational publishing and focus on literacy across a range of projects will bring an interesting skillset to the position, especially as the Library develops its services and programs for young learners alongside the Vision 2020 project.

We look forward to welcoming her to the Library when she starts on Thursday, 28 July.
