Danielle Hunt has joined Pharmacist Support, the profession’s independent charity, as its new Chief Executive.
The former Operations Director at the national environmental charity ‘Keep Britain Tidy’ began her new role on 23rd January replacing Diane Leicester-Hallam who left the organisation in September 2018. A team of 11 members of staff and 9 trustees are supporting her in this role.
“We are delighted to welcome Danielle to Pharmacist Support. The charity has undergone a period of significant growth over the past 10 years and Danielle’s experience will ensure that the profession’s independent charity continues to move forward with confidence,” Steven Lutener, newly appointed Chair of the Pharmacist Support Trustee Board, said. “She has proven leadership qualities and service development expertise which will prove invaluable in the future.”
During her successful ten years with national environmental charity, Hunt has played a central role in leading the organization from a mainly government funded to an entirely self-funded independent charity and helped raise millions through fundraising and service contracts.
“I’m incredibly excited to be joining Pharmacist Support – leading the charity through its next phase of development. The charity has achieved a huge amount in the last ten years, and this work has never been so important. I look forward to working with the staff, volunteers, the board of trustees and others in the sector to develop the organisation and ensure we continue to support pharmacists and their families in the best way possible,” Hunt commented when Pharmacist Support announced her appointment.
