After five years in the role, Mohammad Al-Khafaji is stepping down as chief executive officer of the Federation of Ethnic Communities Councils of Australia.

“It has been an absolute pleasure and privilege leading Australia’s multicultural peak body, and I am so proud of what we have achieved together,” said Mr Al-Khafaji in a statement. “I have no doubt the next CEO will continue to build on the great progress we have made to date.”

Before becoming CEO in April 2019, Mr Al-Khafaji had been acting CEO of FECCA since November 2018 following the resignation of former CEO Dr Emma Campbell.

Prior to that, Mr Al-Khafaji held a number of roles at the organisation including as youth chairperson and honorary secretary on the FECCA executive before joining the FECCA secretariat as the director of strategy and engagement.

Mr Al-Khafaji thanked all those who have supported him over the years “especially the board and my talented and hard-working staff, without whom, FECCA would not be the organisation it is today.”

Mr Al-Khafaji leaves FECCA for a new role at multicultural broadcaster SBS. “SBS is an organisation I have admired for years and their commitment to multicultural Australia as a media organisation speaks for itself, and I am looking forward to making a contribution there,” he said.

Mr Al-Khafaji will continue the role of FECCA CEO until early September.

In the meantime, the recruitment process for his successor is underway. Applications for the role close on Friday 4 August.
