Petrina Mayson – Chief Executive

Petrina Mayson is the CEO of Action in rural Sussex and joined the organisation in July 2018.

Petrina is an experienced CEO, having led East Sussex’s Now Charity Group Ltd through a successful and comprehensive 5 year transformation programme before joining us. She has extensive senior management experience in the education and adult social care sectors, where she focussed on supporting the most disadvantaged and vulnerable in society, via practical and accessible services.

She brings entrepreneurial drive, energy and a positive “can-do” attitude to the charity as it develops its sustainable income streams. Having run her own business as a fundraising bid writer she also has a good understanding of self-employment and a range of business skills alongside her funding acumen.

Petrina has been in leadership roles since she was 21 and enjoys working in genuine partnership with complementary groups and organisations to ensure that ever reducing resources make maximum impact for the beneficiaries.

Her focus has always been to make a lasting difference to people’s lives rather than a temporary fix and this will not be changing!
