Interim Chief Executive
Blair McPhee has joined us as our interim chief executive, and has been a Charity Mentor and senior level Consultant for more than 12 years in the UK supporting a broad range of charities and social enterprises. Prior to that Blair was a private sector Mentor and Managing Director in New Zealand where he helped set up the National Mentoring scheme in association with the Chamber of Commerce; assisting entrepreneurs establish their businesses as well as running his own Business Development company developing his own subsidiary businesses. Blair shares why he has joined Fertility Network UK as interim Chief Executive:
“It is a pleasure to work with the staff and trustees of the charity following the departure of our outgoing chief executive in developing a strategy for growth of our services to patients this year. We would particularly like to thank Aileen for her immense hard work on the #Scream4IVF campaign which is our most successful yet. Whilst we still know there is a long way to go, we are supremely proud of what a huge profile Aileen has built bearing in mind we are still a small charity with a national presence. My role over the next six months is to identify ways in which we can build on the solid foundations of income already developed, grow its impact with our service users, and really help the charity to become the size we all know it could be, as well as securing a new permanent chief executive to take the work of the organisation forward. This will be eased by the fact we have such a dynamic, committed and talented management, staff, volunteer team committed to our service users.”
