We are sad to announce that our Chief Executive, Zack Pemberton-Whiteley, will be leaving Leukaemia Care later this year to take up a new role.
Zack joined the charity in 2014 and prior to his appointment as Chief Executive in 2020, he held the post of Director of Patient Advocacy where he led the charity’s range of advocacy and patient support functions.
Zack has led Leukaemia Care through a significant period of change, including its response to the COVID pandemic, the launch of a new strategic plan, the growth of our fundraising activities and the delivery of several new campaigns and services.
“It has been a pleasure and privilege to serve as Chief Executive for these last three years, and in various roles before that. I am extremely proud of all that we have accomplished and to see the organisation thrive and grow each year. I am confident that Leukaemia Care will continue to be an increasingly strong source of support for people affected by leukaemia.
“Whilst I am moving on from the charity, I will continue to advocate for people affected by leukaemia and other health conditions to have a voice in decisions that affect them and their lives.”
Chris Matthews-Maxwell, Chairman of the Board of Trustees at Leukaemia Care, said:
“On behalf of everyone at Leukaemia Care, I want to thank Zack for his tremendous contribution to our work over the last nine years. During Zack’s time as Chief Executive, the charity has undertaken a period of transformation and growth, none of which would have been possible without his dedication and leadership.
Zack has worked tirelessly to ensure Leukaemia Care is at the forefront of improving the lives of people affected by leukaemia and to collaborating with other organisations to increase our collective impact. We wish him well for the future. I am confident that Zack leaves the charity in a strong position to continue our important work.”
