Internal Restructure at Macmillan Jersey
Macmillan Cancer Support Jersey have appointed Stephanie Gibaut as interim CEO, with Lauren Perchard-Rees stepping down from the position that she held with the charity for six years.
In a move that allows the island-based charity to concentrate on their ambitions plans for 2022 and beyond, Mrs Perchard-Rees will now be the charities’ Chief Clinical Officer. In 2021 she began work on a project with the Government of Jersey to design and deliver a radiotherapy specialist support service for patients going off-island, and with her new role allows an increased focus on partnerships and integration with Health and Community Services, and continuing to design and deliver cancer support services and projects here in Jersey.
Lauren said of the restructure ‘Macmillan Jersey are committed to providing high quality support and care to people diagnosed with cancer and their families. Our strategy going forward ambitiously tackles the gaps in cancer care and the needs for services to be more joined up and meet the holistic needs of each individual affected – this includes their physical, practical, emotional, financial and spiritual needs as they change during their experience with/after cancer. I am delighted to be moving into a role that will focus on this strategy and the opportunity to work more closely with the Government of Jersey and the other cancer and community-based charities and organisations.’
Since graduating in Radiotherapy & Oncology in 2005, and gaining a Masters in this field in 2012, Lauren’s specialist interest area has been in developing and providing holistic (whole person) cancer services in both the UK and here in Jersey.
Mrs Gibaut who will now move into the role has already demonstrated her significant Operations, Fundraising and Business Development acumen, working with the charity for the previous four years - most recently as Head of Operations and Fundraising.
Paul Savery – Macmillan Cancer Support Jersey’s Chairman said of the appointment ‘We are incredibly thankful to Lauren and for all she has achieved whilst in the CEO role and the positive impact she has had on those using our services. Her new responsibilities will see her play an important role in helping our charity achieve its challenging ambitions.
We are also thrilled to promote from within our own ranks and support Stephanie in her new CEO role. She will bring her experience and energy to bear in shaping the way in which we engage with our teams and how we take our services to each part of our community. The health challenges we face as a society remain’.
