DEBRA International Director of Marketing and Communications appointed

The new staff member, Mark Varian, brings with him a wealth of experience gained in both the public and private sectors and is looking forward to using his skills to benefit people living with EB.

"I am delighted to join DEBRA International to help raise the profile of a condition that many people have never heard of. I have worked in a number of marketing and communication roles, most recently for the Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) promoting their six hospitals in London.

I have an unusual CV as I have worked for the NHS as a marketing director as well as for pharmaceutical and consumer healthcare companies. I enjoy working with international teams and so one of my first tasks will be to set up regular telephone calls to that we can create high quality marketing and fundraising toolkits for all DEBRA International member organisations. I look forward to meeting you all, even if it's just on the phone or via email!"
