Polio charity promotes operations director to CEO

The British Polio Fellowship has appointed its operations director Kripen Dhrona as its next chief executive.

Dhrona joined the charity in 2014 and has held roles in marketing and communications before becoming operations manager four years later, then later joining the senior management team as operations director.

“I’m delighted that Kripen has been promoted to chief executive officer,” said the charity’s acting chair Gordon Richardson.

“He has a huge amount of incredibly valuable experience, and the board of trustees is looking forward to working with him to take the charity through its next era of development and impact.”

Following his appointment this month many of his day to day duties are being handled by operations officer Matthew Thomas and communications and information officer Carol Levin.

The British Polio Fellowship supports those living with the late effects of polio and post-polio syndrome (PPS).

“We have a large membership base, a solid reputation and a winning strategy that will enable us to grow,” said Dhrona.

“Building further on our success is a challenge I accept with confidence, determination and fierce ambition. I am passionately committed to campaigning to raise awareness of PPS among healthcare professionals, members of parliament and the general public."
