Kidney Cancer UK’s new CEO is Malcolm Packer

Kidney Cancer UK and Kidney Cancer Scotland are pleased to announce that their new Chief Executive Officer will be Malcolm Packer.

Packer has worked with Kidney Cancer UK since 2007 on a freelance, voluntary basis and on a permanent part time basis since 2013 as Head of Charity Affairs and Communications.

His achievements include establishing the Kidney Cancer UK Annual Patient Survey, which is approaching its tenth year; running Kidney Cancer Awareness Week and leading the Kidney Cancer UK Accord project. This last resulted in a formal commission from NHS England to NICE to produce what will be the first national clinical guideline on kidney cancer.

Responding to his appointment, Packer said: “I am extremely proud to have been selected to move this Charity forward.  There will be challenges to overcome, but I am confident that with the help of the team at Kidney Cancer UK, we can make our support for patients, families and carers better and better.”

The announcement comes after an extensive interview and selection process.  Berkeley Greenwood, Chair of the Board of Trustees said: “We are delighted that Malcolm will lead the Charity through what is an exciting time, as kidney cancer gains greater prominence and we work with various partners to improve its diagnosis and treatment.”

Packer will take up his new post on 17th April.
