CRANSLEY Hospice Trust, who provides specialist palliative care to patients with a life-limiting illness, has welcomed Paul Humphrey, the new Chair to the Board of Trustees.
Paul has been on the board of Trustees at Cransley Hospice since April 2020. He is an experienced General Manager and Non-Executive Director, with an M.B.A. from Cranfield University Business School. Paul’s early career was in UK Manufacturing and Human Resources Management, and more recently, he has held several senior executive positions in the international fashion and consumer sector.
Paul and his family have been supporters of Cransley for many years, actively volunteering and managing the Cransley Hospice Community Choir, he said:
“Palliative and end of life care is a subject that remains close to my heart. It will be a privilege to serve as Chair of the Cransley Hospice Trust.”
Paying tribute to the outgoing chair, Cransley Hospice Trust CEO Peter Kelby said:
“On behalf of the Board of Trustees and the staff at Cransley, I would like to express my deep gratitude to Maureen Gaskell, for her commitment as Chair to the hospice over the past few years and the knowledge and support that she has shared with us.”
Maureen will be retiring from the board at the end of the year and said:
“I am absolutely delighted that Paul Humphrey is taking over as Chair for Cransley Hospice Trust. He brings a wealth of business experience, deep local knowledge and a commitment to the work that Cransley Hospice does in the community and at the hospice.”
Paul takes over as Chair on January 1st. An exciting time for the hospice as the lease of the current building adjacent to St Mary’s Hospital in Kettering expires in 2023 and the team begin to drive forward the plans for the future vision of the hospice.
