Paul Norfolk has been appointed as CEO of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of New Zealand (PCFNZ) from 28 January. His background includes 25 years in the corporate world, a decade running an executive solutions, sales, marketing and events management consultancy, and over 7 years as CEO of a not-for-profit organisation.
