MAC-UK are delighted to announce the appointment of 9 new trustees to our Board of Trustees in 2018.

The new trustees have a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences across the public, private and third sectors. They are Mark Larsen, Venetia Boon, Julian Thompson, Dr Nick Barnes, Nic Crowe, Fiona Dawe CBE, Steph Taylor, Stephen Hyams, and Julia Nocker, who will act as our new treasurer.

Mark Larsen is a Managing Director within Accenture’s Health & Public Service business while Venetia Boon is a grant manager at Comic Relief. Nic Crowe currently works as a commercial professional at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and has previously worked with MAC-UK, organising a team of fellow civil servants to raise money for MAC-UK.

Steph Taylor has also worked with us in the past, when she led Talent Match at London Youth. Julian Thompson and Fiona Dawe both have backgrounds in the voluntary sector, while Stephen Hyams is an actuary with around 35 years’ experience in pensions.

Dr Nick Barnes joins with a wealth of experience working in Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) and is currently a young people’s psychiatrist and Cognitive Analytic therapist, as well as being an Honorary Senior Lecturer at University College London. Julia Nocker is fully CIMA qualified Accountant and has worked at Unilever for the past 8 years and will bring expertise in her new role as Treasurer.

As well as our new trustees arriving, moving on from their time as trustees of MAC-UK is our Treasurer, Rob Murphy, who stepped down on 16/01/18. Rob has been a dedicated Treasurer for the past 6 years and we would like to thank him for all of his hard work for us over the years. Ciaran Biggins stepped down as a Trustee on 24/01/18 following a vibrant contribution over a busy 18 months for MAC-UK and his time with us enabled us to innovate our business model to consider our future sustainability, vital for any charity.
