New Chief Executive for NAT.
Deborah Gold has been appointed as Chief Executive of NAT.
Dame Denise Platt, Chair of NAT said: We are delighted to welcome Deborah Gold to NAT. She is a highly successful voluntary sector leader who will bring a passionate commitment to equality and human rights, coupled with a proven track record of campaigning and influencing and sound management and fundraising experience.
Deborah was Chief Executive of Galop, the LGBT anti-violence and abuse charity, from 2007 to 2013 and has also worked at Stonewall Housing, Shelter and the London Voluntary Services Council. Currently in an interim role at Disability Action in Islington, she is also Chair of the Crown Prosecution Service London Scrutiny and Involvement Panel.
Deborah Gold said: I am thrilled to be joining NAT, a charity for which I have immense respect and admiration. It’s a crucial time when reducing levels of awareness, increasing diagnoses, the devastating impact of the changes to welfare benefits, and the challenges of ensuring equal access to care all mean that there is much for NAT to do. I am very much looking forward to joining NAT’s team of Trustees, staff and volunteers and playing my part in improving the lives of people living with HIV in the UK.
Deborah will take up her appointment on 27 October 2014. In the meantime, Susie Parsons will continue to lead NAT as Interim Chief Executive.
