Inaugural CEO announced to lead newly merged Huntington's Australia
Following the recent announcement about State Association memberships agreeing to proceed with a national merger, Huntington’s Australia (HA) has appointed a new CEO to lead the new association.
Lenni Duffield, from Huntington’s WA, has been unanimously endorsed by the HA Board as the inaugural CEO of Huntington’s Australia.
Lenni has held senior roles and provided business consulting services in health and community service sectors, has qualifications in business, management and leadership, community sector management and is currently in the process of completing her Master in Business Administration with the Australian Institute of Management, with whom she is an Associate Fellow.
“Lenni comes equipped with a range of skills, knowledge, qualifications, experience and personal attributes that make her a standout candidate. Her commitment to and passion for bettering the lives of people with and impacted by Huntington’s disease is unquestioned.” Says Chris Glasson, Chair HA.
“Fortunately for us, we have been able to see what Lenni can do in person over a good time-period, through her work as CEO in WA and thorough her Project Management work with the merger feasibility study and more latterly planning for the merger implementation. Her consistent, high-quality work and standards over an extended period give us great confidence that we have the right person to take the new organisation forward.” Chris continues.
