The Brain Tumour Charity has announced today that Graham Norton has been appointed as Interim CEO, after Alex Lochrane stepped down from his role as CEO at the end of last week (Friday 1 July).
Alex took up the role in January 2022, joining The Charity following six and a half years as CEO at Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance.
In the interim, current trustees Graham Norton and Graham Lindsay (Vice Chair) have temporarily stepped down from the Board to lead the organisation, with Graham Norton acting as Interim CEO, and Graham Lindsay as Interim Deputy CEO, while The Charity recruits a permanent successor. These interim appointments are subject to approval from the Charities Commission.
A chartered accountant with over 25 years’ experience at very senior levels in FTSE 100 companies, Graham Norton first became involved as a trustee of legacy organisation, the Samantha Dickson Brain Tumour Trust, in 2003, following the death of his son in 2000. Graham and his wife (Berendina Norton) have been trustees ever since.
A trustee since 2010 and Vice Chair since 2013, Graham Lindsay has over 40 years’ wide-ranging experience in banking, with Lloyds Banking Group, where he led significant branch networks. Now an independent Non-Executive Director, he first became involved with brain tumours when his wife Judy was diagnosed in 2006.
