The Smith-Magenis Syndrome (SMS) Foundation UK introduces Leeann Stevenson as our Information and Communications Manager.
For the past eight years, Leeann has been at the heart of our communications, information and branding as a Trustee of the charity. The transformation of the charity in this time has been exceptional. Leeann’s dedication has resulted in the Foundation becoming the go-to organisation for information on Smith-Magenis syndrome not only for the United Kingdom but across the world.
Nigel Over, CEO (Designate) says, “I am delighted that Leeann is becoming a core member of our senior management team. This transition is a natural development that will help strengthen the charity with greater focus on information and communication. Leeann also brings in valuable business experience vital to the successful management of the charity especially in this stage of our evolution.”
Leeann is the mother to three children, Lily who is 13 (SMS), William who is eight, and Teddy who is five. Leeann is coming from being a director of a small Web Design agency in Marlborough, Wiltshire that specialises in charity websites and marketing.
Hazel Wotherspoon, Chairperson, adds “During the time Leeann has been involved in the Foundation she has used her design skills to breathe new life into the charity branding, logo, website and digital marketing platforms. She has also been responsible for the publication of our booklet, guidance literature, awareness videos, and leading the Support My Smile campaigns. It is fantastic that Leeann is now able to devote more time to the charity as she moves into the position of Communications Manager.”
Leeann is continuing to provide Pro Bono support to the Foundation as a Trustee and will take up the position of Communications Manager once we have completed our transition to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation.
