“For families going through such heartache and challenge with their child facing cancer, knowing that an organisation like Redkite is there to help them – whether that be to navigate the system, or to provide financial or emotional support when they need it – is truly a lifeline for so many families at a time when they need it most. Given my experience in scaling up organisations, building brands and creating high performing teams, I look forward to helping, particularly as Redkite looks to scale up and help more families in need.”
Redkite CEO Monique Keighery said Deanne’s deep leadership experience and passion for people and culture will be of great value to Redkite.
“Redkite is embarking on an ambitious path to further grow and enhance our support for families as they face childhood cancer. As a people-centred organisation, Deanne’s experience in building engaged and high-performing teams will be invaluable as we work towards closing the gaps in support for the thousands of families who are struggling right now with the challenges of childhood cancer.”
