MS Society names new support and services chief

The MS Society has promoted its assistant director of information and support Sam Walker to lead its services for beneficiaries.

Walker becomes executive director of services and support after joining the charity five years ago.

She had been interim executive director of services and support since December and has previously held senior roles at the Sutton Centre for Independent Living, National Trust and Shopmobility.

“I’m very much looking forward to continuing to work together with our amazing volunteers and colleagues to deliver the best possible services and support for the MS community,” said Walker, who takes over from Ed Holloway.

Holloway had been executive director of digital and services at the MS Society and left to become chief executive officer at the Bank Workers Charity.

She added: “MS and the MS Society have been in my life for many years. My Mum was diagnosed in 1967.

“The majority of my career working in charities has been focused on shaping services which support and empower people to self-manage. The importance and value of listening to the people who need, want and use services is incomparable.

“That’s why involving our community in designing and delivering our services is so important to me and something I'm looking forward to doing.”

MS Society CEO Nick Moberly, said: “Under her leadership our national services have gone from strength to strength. I know she’s the right person to lead our excellent services and support team on the next stage of our journey.”
