Moon Consulting Announces Several Appointments to Complete a Board Build for Cancer Research UK

In 2017, Moon Consulting was appointed as an official recruitment partner for Cancer Research UK, leading a project to establish a new advisory Board for the South West region.

Following an extensive search campaign conducted by Moon’s Executive Search Consultant, Sandy Hinks, we are delighted to announce that several appointments have been made to the newly formed Board of Directors in Bristol.

Tapping into the vast Moon Consulting network, Sandy was able to reach out to a group of exceptional individuals to help form the new advisory board which will contribute to major research in Bristol such as the £4.1m Cancer Epidemiology Programme.

This major cancer research programme is focussing on new ways to prevent and predict cancer development and progression. The five-year project will use advances in genetics and molecular technology to understand the causes of the disease, and to inform the development of preventative interventions in people at risk of, or diagnosed with, cancer.

Of the search, Sandy commented; “When I was approaching potential board members for this campaign, I was overwhelmed with the positivity and support from everyone. The idea of setting up  this new board was met with lots of enthusiasm, and the interest with what Cancer Research UK is achieving for Bristol has been clear from the outset.”

We are now delighted to be able to announce the members who are forming this new board;

Chair – Mike Beech, Marketing Director of Tribal Group

Board Member – Ashley Bijester, Managing Director of Imperial Civil Enforcement Solutions

Board Member – Karen Edgington, Self-Employed Fundraising Consultant
