He joins after more than three decades experience in fundraising roles, raising more than £750m to date at organisations, including the Old Vic Theatre, Royal Institution of Engineering and Technology and automate industry charity BEN.

In his role at Brain Tumour Research he will over see its income generation strategy of raising £35m a year for brain tumour research.

“Russell joins at a challenging and exciting time,” said the charity’s chief executive Sue Farrington Smith.

“Thanks to our loyal supporters we are looking forward to a period of continued growth and remain confident in our ambition to extend our network of Brain Tumour Research Centres of Excellence in the UK.”

Marriott, who has lost a relative due to a brain tumour, added: “Sadly, like so many people, I have first-hand experience of this devastating disease and I am very pleased to be joining Brain Tumour Research at what I hope will be a pivotal time in the growth of the charity as it strives towards finding a cure for all types of brain tumour.”
