Teenage Cancer Trust are thrilled to welcome Paul Brown as our new Director of Marketing and Communications.
Paul joins us after 16 years at The Prince’s Trust, where he built up the charity’s marketing function. During his time at The Prince’s Trust, Paul was responsible for growing and protecting the brand which has an annual turnover of more than £70 million and will support around 70,000 vulnerable and disadvantaged young people this year alone.
Paul’s wealth of experience and a deeply held personal commitment to improving the lives of young people is integral to Teenage Cancer Trust, who take the approach ‘young person first, cancer patient second.’ The recruitment process included the involvement of young people from our Youth Advisory Group.
Paul Brown said:
At The Prince’s Trust I have learnt that everyone deserves support at the most difficult times in their lives. I am delighted to be joining Teenage Cancer Trust, whose work I have admired for many years. I am looking forward to joining the team and helping to make sure that every young person with cancer can access the advice and support they need.
Kate Collins, Chief Executive of Teenage Cancer Trust, said:
I could not be more thrilled that we have been able to bring someone of Paul’s calibre to Teenage Cancer Trust. His skill, enthusiasm and experience – as well as his commitment to the vision and purpose of the charity - shone through during the selection process. I am sure he will help us go from strength to strength, ensuring we can do everything possible for young people with cancer. We can’t wait to welcome him to the team and work with him.
Paul takes over the role from the Interim Director Alison Cowan, who has overseen the restructure and growth of the Marketing and Communications directorate during 2018 to increase capacity and skills in brand management, content and digital.
