Neil Fray – Project Director
Neil joined the MND Association as Director of Finance in January 2018 having spent well over a decade in the non-profit sector.
He spent his early career in industry sectors ranging from construction and energy to waste management and IT recruitment, Neil made a conscious decision, in 2004, to move into the third sector and apply his skills in organisations with a greater social purpose.
Neil then joined Energy & Utility Skills, a non-profit organisation tasked with improving the UK skills base of the energy & utilities sector, as Finance Director where he spent eleven years.
Neil's next move was to join Lincoln based IEMA, the membership body for environmental and sustainability professionals, as Finance Director with a remit to deliver a change programme around technology and operational services. After supporting the transition to a full time Finance Director he then took a short sabbatical before joining the MND Association as Director of Finance.
In September 2019 Neil stepped down from his role as Director of Finance to focus on delivering the office move for the Association before leaving us to pursue other interests at the end of January 2020.
Outside work Neil has a passion for Art History and walking up mountains. He is a Trustee of the Association for Art History and Action On Poverty.
