Leading tinnitus charity, Tinnitus UK (formerly the British Tinnitus Association) has filled its problematical key CEO vacancy, appointing from within the organisation.
The year 2023 began with a sudden bump for Tinnitus UK, when it announced that its newly named CEO - appointed last October - had left the charity. Taking over as Interim CEO entered Caroline Savage, previously the group's Director of Fundraising and Communications. And Caroline Savage has been given the job permanently.
"Tinnitus UK is delighted to announce Caroline Savage has been appointed as its new Chief Executive Officer after a successful period as Interim CEO," the organisation has announced.""Lynne Gillon, Chair of Tinnitus UK, said: “We are very pleased that Caroline put herself forward for the role after her impressive tenure as our interim CEO. We look forward to Caroline’s leadership in our continuous quest to support more people who are affected by tinnitus, whilst searching for a cure.”
Mission to increase research investment
The newly designated CEO outlined the key focuses of her mission: “We will develop and deliver even better services and work even harder to increase investment in tinnitus research.”
It was an easy decision for Savage to take the post, thanks to "the growing critical need for what Tinnitus UK does, combined with the drive, commitment and expertise of the team."
"Together with our award-winning support resources we have a strong foundation to build on for the years ahead," she added.
The new CEO of this frontline contingent in combatting a condition that affects 7.6 million people in the UK – 1.5 million of them with severe tinnitus - has 25 years of broad charity and voluntary sector experience, including working with health, arts and international development organisations. She has extensive leadership and Director-level expertise in defining and delivering strategies to grow income and service development, to increase the reach and impact of organisations, points out Tinnitus UK.
