In May 2019, Penny Brohn UK announced the appointment of Stephen Rosser as its new Chair of the Board of Trustees after Francesca Barnes stepped down as Chair after 12 years in the role.

The CEO of Clark Willmott LLP has been involved in a number of key regeneration projects in the South West across both the public and private sectors. Having lived in Bristol for 20 years, Stephen knew what great work Penny Brohn UK did and became actively involved when he ran the London Marathon in aid of the charity. Stephen joined the Board of Trustees in 2012 and was appointed Vice Chair in 2015.

Francesca led the Board through times of significant evolution. Penny Brohn UK now supports over 13,000 clients; research evidences that 70% of clients have a clinically significant improvement in their main cancer concern; exceptional partnerships have been developed with key cancer players such as Walk the Walk, GenesisCare, Macmillan, BHOC and others.
