Introducing MND Scotland's new Chief Executive

Posted : 25/06/2021

MND Scotland has announced Rachel Maitland as its new Chief Executive.

Coinciding with celebrating our 40th year, Rachel will be joining MND Scotland on 19th July, leading the organisation into a new era of growth and development.

Currently Head of Supply and Operations for Edinburgh based energy company, Flexitricity, and Chair of Forth Valley Rape Crisis, Rachel said:

“I'm truly honoured to be joining MND Scotland as it enters its 40th year. So much has already been achieved by the fantastic team but we have so much more to do.

I'm really looking forward to working alongside my new colleagues, our service users and the wider MND community to bring the amazing work of MND Scotland to the forefront of the public's mind and ensure that, regardless of background or circumstance, anyone and everyone requiring MND information, assistance or support in Scotland can access it readily.”    

This week we celebrated our 40th anniversary, therefore it is a fitting time to welcome a new Chief Executive into the organisation, to help us build a better future for families living with MND today, and drive our movement to end MND.

40 years ago, there was no support, care or treatment available in Scotland. Today, we provide life changing services to hundreds of families living with MND and lead the fightback to end MND, by powering cutting-edge research which is taking us a step closer to a cure.

Welcoming Rachel to the team, MND Scotland’s Chairman, Adrian Murphy, said:

“This is an extremely exciting time to join MND Scotland’s team and lead the charity’s strategic direction at this pivotal point.

“Over the past 40 years we have come a long way, and that is a true testament to our incredible fundraisers, staff, volunteers and partners, but our fight is not over.

“We are looking to the future, and this gives Rachel the unique opportunity to harness the progress already made and elevate our charity and cause to the next level.

“We look forward to welcoming her to Team MND Scotland very soon.”
