NMC Board is delighted to have appointed Dan Tickle as the new Chief Executive Officer of National Migraine Centre.
It’s all change at NMC as we welcome our new chief executive, Dan Tickle, who joined us in March 2021. Dan is an award-winning charity leader, bringing with him over 20 years’ experience in a career that encompasses health, disability, international development, animal welfare and children’s charities.
As chief executive of charity No Smoking Day, Dan spearheaded the UK’s leading public health campaign, working alongside the NHS and government to deliver innovative marketing and promote services designed to help smokers quit for good.
Anthony Stratton, Chair of the National Migraine Centre Board, said: “I would like to express thanks to David on behalf of the Board, the staff and from me personally for his work, dedication and commitment to the NMC.”
“We welcome Dan Tickle as CEO of the NMC. Dan has over 20 years’ experience in the charity sector with organisations as diverse as the animal charities SPANA and The Blue Cross along with health sector ones including No Smoking Day, Deafness Research UK and Mencap. Dan brings a wealth of leadership and commercial experience to the role of CEO.”
Dan joins the charity with a mission to grow NMC’s reach, building our capacity to help more people in need of our services. Dan will drive a far reaching new strategic direction for National Migraine Centre, focussing on expanding our high quality services and helping many more people who suffer with migraine.
Dan said: “It’s an honour to join such a remarkable charity, which has had such a transformational impact on lives for over 40 years now. With such a dedicated and talented team of doctors and support staff, it’s no wonder our patients tell us how much they value the work of NMC. But our demand has grown exponentially in recent years and we know we need to grow too if we’re to help all those who need us. So I’ll be working with the team to expand our work, reaching more people in need while always maintaining the very highest standards of care.”
