We’re excited to welcome two highly respected leaders in digital technology, health and civil society to our board. Dr Danny Sriskandarajah, currently Chief Executive for renowned aid and development charity Oxfam GB, joins us alongside Katherine Ward, Chief Commercial Officer and Managing Director of digital healthcare start-up Healthy.io.
Danny has been the Chief Executive of Oxfam GB since 2019. Prior to this, he held leadership roles at the global civil society alliance CIVICUS, think-tank the Institute for Public Policy Research and the Royal Commonwealth Society, a Commonwealth charity. Commenting on his new appointment, Danny said:
Katherine brings extensive expertise to our board with over 26 years of experience in the healthcare sector. Before joining Healthy.io, she held both provider and payer roles in the UK’s National Health Service and was the Chief Executive of healthcare service provider UnitedHealth UK. Katherine will be chairing our Strategy Advisory Group and the adolescent mental health programme committee. Speaking about joining the board, Katherine said:
Kieron Boyle, our Chief Executive, added: "we're striving to be at the forefront of new approaches to tackling complex urban health issues. If the current crisis tells organisations anything, it's about the importance of adaptability and diversity of new perspectives. Danny and Katherine's invaluable expertise across sectors will help us navigate the current climate and shape the impact we have as a Charity."
Our two new Trustees join eight other experts on our board. Together, they help shape the strategic direction of our programmes on childhood obesity, multiple long-term conditions, the health effects of air pollution, and our efforts to support Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust to provide world-class care.
