We’re delighted to announce that in the coming weeks Michelle Crawford will be joining the Children’s Cancer Foundation as our new Chief Executive Officer. Michelle has extensive experience in the not-for-profit sector, particularly in organisations assisting marginalised and disadvantaged individuals in our community, and was most recently Chief Executive Officer of Concern Australia. Stepping into the role on Monday, 20 March, we’re excited to have Michelle on board to drive the next phase of our journey as we continue to increase our impact.
“After three decades working in the fight against social exclusion and poverty in Australia, I am humbled to join the team at the Children’s Cancer Foundation in a new fight – to end childhood cancer. I look forward to collaborating with world-class, dedicated, and visionary researchers, along with allied professionals who make a difference in the lives of children and their families. I am committed to ensuring that the experience of each child is at the centre of all we do, and that their voices are heard” – Michelle Crawford
As we welcome Michelle, we also take this opportunity to thank Jeff Darmanin who has been the Foundation’s honorary Executive Director for the past three years. Jeff’s contribution has been truly extraordinary, his leadership, strategic planning and execution have assisted the Foundation to navigate the difficulties of the past few years and emerge stronger and more cohesive than ever.
The Children’s Cancer Foundation are grateful to Jeff for his service and pleased that he has recently committed to another three years as a Non-Executive Director. Jeff will assist the Foundation to implement its pledge with the Victorian government to the Victorian Paediatric Cancer Consortium over the next few years.
“I’m thrilled to have someone of Michelle’s ability join the Foundation as new CEO and I look forward to working with her to build a better world for children with cancer”
– Jeff Darmanin
