THE MS Society has appointed a new Executive Director of Engagement & Income Generation.
Clare Horwood joins the MS Society with 15 years of charity experience working at a number of organisations in senior positions. For the past five years, Clare has worked in interim roles, most recently, at Mind as the Interim Associate Director of Fundraising and before that was in a similar role at Diabetes UK.
In her new role, Clare will oversee all aspects of marketing and fundraising at the MS Society, including the charity’s Stop MS Appeal, which aims to raise £100m for MS research.
“I have admired the work of the MS Society for years. The mix of world-class research, support, and campaigns and policy, as well as the local group network, are what makes the charity so brilliant, and the difference they have made to people living with MS is extraordinary.
“I’m really looking forward to meeting everyone and can’t wait to get started.”
Clare will be joining the MS Society on 22 February and replaces Emma Whitcombe, who left the charity in December to move overseas.
