Tenovus Cancer Care Chief Executive Claudia McVie will step down from her role this spring, following a hugely successful 12 years with the charity.
During her tenure, Wales’ leading cancer charity has gone from strength-to-strength and has an unparalleled reputation in supporting cancer patients and their families with innovations including its Mobile Support Units and Sing with Us choirs.
Claudia McVie said:
“It’s been an honour for me to lead this wonderful charity for more than a decade and I will be incredibly sad to leave, but I feel it is the right time for me and my family.
“Tenovus Cancer Care has wonderful staff who are committed to helping cancer patients and their loved ones through the most difficult period of their lives.
“I would like to wish them all the very best for the future and I will remain a committed supporter and vocal advocate of the fantastic work Tenovus Cancer Care does in communities across Wales.”
Claudia joined Tenovus Cancer Care in April 2007 from child cancer charity CLIC Sargent, having previously worked for Cancer Research UK and the Cancer Research Campaign.
Professor Malcom Mason, Tenovus Cancer Care Chair of Trustees, commented:
“Claudia has been an inspirational leader and has guided the charity to some incredible accomplishments during the last 12 years.
“We will be immensely sad to lose her but we are so grateful that we were fortunate enough to have her with us for such a long time. Her tenure has been supremely distinguished, and she deserves to look back on her achievements here with immense pride, just as we take pride in everything that she has done for us.
“The search for her successor has now begun. While Claudia will be a tough act to follow, we have every expectation that we will appoint a superb successor to steer the charity through the next chapter in its history.”
