Alison Dean has joined Lewis-Manning Hospice Care as Director of Finance and Operations. Alison brings with her a wealth of experience in Operations, across a variety of sectors, including Investment Management and IT.

Clare Gallie, CEO at Lewis-Manning Hospice Care said, “We are delighted to welcome Alison on board, particularly at this time when we are about to move to our lovely new premises at Longfleet House in Poole. With Alison’s background knowledge of the charity, as well as being part of the committee dedicated to organising the planning and designing of the work we had done at Longfleet House, she is the ideal addition to the team and has come in and hit the ground running. She will be a real asset to the charity and we are grateful to have her expertise on board to help drive the hospice forward with our new Closer to Home strategy.

Alison commented, “I am very much looking forward to my new role and excited to be working with such an enthusiastic hospice team. I am very aware of the excellent work that Lewis-Manning Hospice Care carry out in local communities across East Dorset and Purbeck as I have been a Trustee of the charity for the last year. I have now resigned from this role and am very happy to become a permanent staff member. As you can imagine, with new premises to be moved into it will be an extremely busy time for us all and I’m looking forward to the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead!”
