PRESS RELEASE: 22 January 2013

PCFNZ CEO Appointed

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. He has considerable experience in establishing and enhancing business and media relationships, managing national and international sponsorship and fundraising projects, and developing strong relationships/partnerships and alliances with volunteer organisations, sponsors, stakeholders, and funding entities.

Since 2010 the Prostate Cancer Foundation has strengthened its governance structures and established sound management systems. The President of the Foundation, Mark von Dadelszen, said that Mr Norfolk will build on the sound foundations established by his predecessor. “Paul brings a set of experiences and skills to the CEO’s role which will assist the Foundation to establish more support groups around the country, create greater awareness of prostate cancer issues, and to raise funds to support the Foundation’s work.”

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.
