After announcing that its Chairman is stepping down after seven years, award winning medical research charity, RAFT, is looking to recruit a replacement.
It has taken on Board specialists, Robinson Hambro to lead the search.
Chairman Francis Gugen said “I’ve been associated with RAFT for over twenty years – as a supporter, Trustee and, latterly, as Chairman. Next year, RAFT will celebrate its 30th anniversary and, as it prepares for the next 30 years, it is a good time for someone new to come in and lead the next stage.”
RAFT CEO, Leonor Stjepic said “Francis will leave a big hole. His vision and support of RAFT’s development will be sorely missed. When Francis announced he was leaving, we knew we needed to get in the best expert help we could to find a replacement and I am delighted that Robinson Hambro have agreed to take on the task.”
