ARMA welcomes Sue Brown as new CEO

The Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Alliance (ARMA) is very pleased to announce the appointment of Sue Brown as the new CEO of ARMA with effect from the 13th February 2017. Following advertising, there was a very strong field of 15 candidates and Sue Brown was the unanimous choice of the interview panel.

Sue has a very strong background in leadership roles in the charity sector and in working successfully with voluntary sector alliances. She has been the Vice Chair of the large Care and Support Alliance and has worked for many years as Head of Public Policy for Sense (the deaf/blind charity) and previously for Mind. She has a very substantial background in influencing, policy and networking with Government organisations. She is looking forward to working closely with ARMA member organisations to help raise the profile and priority of arthritis and MSK conditions with public decision makers.

Sue will aim to visit as many as possible of the ARMA member organisations in the first month of her appointment.

We will also be saying a warm thanks and farewell to Federico Moscogiuri, the current CEO, who will be leaving ARMA on the 10th February to take up the post of CEO of the Resuscitation Council.  We wish him the very best in his future role.
