CEO Of Prostate Cancer Foundations Resigns


CEO Of Prostate Cancer Foundations Resigns

Keith Beck has resigned as CEO of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of New Zealand (PCFNZ).

Mr Beck has managed the organisation for three years and will be leaving at the end of January 2013. PCFNZ is involved in many successful initiatives, most notably the national Blue September campaign which raises money and awareness for prostate cancer research.

“It has been an honour to lead PCFNZ and to help the organisation grow to the level it is at now. PCFNZ works tirelessly to provide support for men with prostate cancer and I know they will continue to do good work long after I’m gone,” says Beck.

President of the Board, Mark von Dadelszen, said that Mr Beck has been instrumental in raising the organisation to a new level of professionalism during his tenure: “Keith has really extended the reach of the organisation since he’s been in the role. He is very well respected throughout the Foundation, by other charities, and by medical professionals, politicians and Government officials. We wish him well in his new position.”

A new appointment will be announced in the New Year.

PCFNZ supports men who have prostate or testicular cancer and their families, seeks to increase public awareness of prostate and testicular cancers, educates the public about prostate and testicular cancers, and funds research into improved methods of diagnosis and treatment.
