Palliative Care Australia chief executive Rohan Greenland has been appointed CEO of the newly amalgamated MS Australia.
Mr Greenland will take up the post on December 14, board president Associate Professor Desmond Graham announced, bringing with him a track record of public health advocacy and stakeholder engagement.
“In a tough environment for the not-for-profit sector, Rohan has the experience required to help MS Australia speak with one voice about care, research and advocacy and brings an established network of stakeholders which will help our message to be heard,” Professor Graham said.
He said Mr Greenland would advance MS Australia’s core purpose of achieving the best possible outcomes for those living with MS by enabling care and support, funding research and advocating for more investment into the disease.
Mr Greenland has been CEO of Palliative Care Australia since February 2019 and has worked in senior advocacy roles at the National Heart Foundation and the AMA, as well as being a political adviser to government ministers.
He said he was excited to be joining MS Australia at an important time in its development.
“I look forward to doing all I can to build on that reputation and help achieve its ultimate goal, a world without MS,” he said.
MS Australia supports top level research and provides advocacy and support for the 26,500 Australians who are living with MS and their families and carers.
