#GreatHires – Russam Celebrates Placement of Laurie Lee as CEO of Guy’s and St Thomas’ Foundation

Russam is thrilled to announce the successful placement of Laurie Lee as the new CEO of Guy’s and St Thomas’ Foundation, one of the most significant independent charitable foundations in the UK. Laurie, who has been serving as the interim CEO since last April, officially takes the helm next month following Kieron Boyle, who provided seven years of outstanding leadership.

With a distinguished career that spans across the third sector and government roles, Laurie’s previous positions include CEO of Care International UK for eight years, and senior director roles at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the UK’s Department for International Development. His extensive experience and leadership skills make him the perfect fit for guiding the foundation towards its goal of improving health equity.

Susanne Given, Chair of Guy’s & St Thomas’s Foundation, expressed her enthusiasm about Laurie’s appointment: “We’re delighted that Laurie will be leading the organisation and its critical work to improve health equity. He brings a wealth of experience from several senior roles in the third sector and government, which will be invaluable as we pursue our ambitious goals.”

Russam is proud to have facilitated this match, highlighting our commitment to connecting talented individuals with roles where they can make a significant impact. We look forward to seeing the advancements Laurie will bring to the foundation and the broader community. Congratulations to Laurie Lee and the Guy’s and St Thomas’ Foundation on this new chapter!
