The Progressive Supranuclear Palsy Association (PSPA) has announced Andrew Symons as its new Chief Executive. Andrew will take up his position in April, when he will succeed interim Chief Executive, John Chandler.
Andrew has held senior positions in both commercial and public sectors over the past 20 years. Announcing his appointment, PSPA Chair, Simon Koe, said: “Andrew has a track record of strong leadership and we are confident that he will take PSPA from strength to strength to enable us to provide support to families affected by PSP and CBD, to raise awareness, fund research into early diagnosis, effective treatments and ultimately a cure. We believe he will bring leadership and compassion to this role and will take PSPA forward.
On behalf of the Board, I would like to congratulate him on his appointment, and we look forward to welcoming him to the team.”
Commenting on his new position, Andrew said:“I am excited to be joining the PSPA. My father was diagnosed with PSP, so I personally know the devastating impact a diagnosis of PSP and CBD can have. I look forward to working with our committed volunteers and staff so that we can do even more for the people we are here to serve.”
