Introducing our new CEO

Tanya CurryThis is Tanya Curry, who will be stepping into the role of Chief Executive Officer at the MND Association, in January.

Tanya’s appointment comes in the wake of the announcement that Sally Light is stepping down at the end of the year, after a decade leading the charity.

Tanya started her career in nursing and has worked in the charity sector for more than 20 years, in leadership positions for the last 15. She joins us from Impetus, where she has been the Interim CEO – before that she was in the same role with The Ramblers.

She said:

“I am hugely excited to be joining the MND Association. I began my career as a nurse and specialised in palliative care, so I feel I am going back to my roots, working with a community I care about deeply. After leading clinical services and several national charities as Interim CEO, including most recently The Ramblers and Impetus, I am thrilled to be able to use my skills as a CEO to lead the MND Association on the next stage of its journey.”

The Association’s Chair of Trustees Usman Khan said:

“Tanya is a highly experienced leader, with a background in healthcare, who has worked in the voluntary sector for more than 20 years. Throughout the recruitment process, we have been impressed with Tanya’s passion for the Association and our work, and are confident she is the right person to drive the delivery of the Promises we made to the MND community at the start of 2022.”
