Jayne Spink, CEO, leaves to take the lead at Genetic Alliance UK

Our first ever CEO, Dr Jayne Spink, will be stepping down in April after 5 years with the TSA. Since Jayne joined the TSA we have seen an unparalleled period of growth and expansion, and we would like to offer her our grateful thanks for her leadership. Jayne leaves the TSA to become CEO of Genetic Alliance UK, the national charity working to improve the lives of patients and families affected by all types of genetic conditions. We hope you will join us in wishing Jayne well in her new role.

Chair of the TSA Trustee Board, Martin Short said:

“The TSA has been superbly led by our first CEO, whom we wish well as she takes her skills and enthusiasm to this important role leading Genetic Alliance UK. We are delighted that we are already one of its partner organisations and will still keep in touch with her.”

On leaving the TSA, Jayne said:

“It’s been an absolutely unique and incredible journey; a marvellous job that has exceeded my expectations. It has been a privilege to serve as the TSA’s first CEO and I wish the organisation and its community, of which I have grown exceedingly fond, every success in the future.”

The Trustee Board, led by Martin, has begun the process of seeking Jayne’s successor. We are confident that we can attract good candidates and someone who will drive the TSA still further. The recruitment pack can be downloaded here:
