11th January, 2019 by Amy Hopkins

Alcohol awareness charity Drinkaware has appointed three new trustees and a non-executive director.

Dr Varuna Aluviahre has joined Drinkaware’s board of trustees

The new trustees are: Dr Varuna Aluviahre, consultant transplant hepatologist and hepatology transplant lead at the Institute of Liver Studies, Kings College Hospital; Marc Dench, chief financial officer at clothing, accessories and homeware firm Joules Group; and Dr Colin Hunter OBE, who has recently retired after working as a GP for 33 years and was previously chair of trustees at the Royal College of General Practitioners.

Dominic McNeill, global marketing director for Nando’s Grocery, joins Drinkaware as an independent non-executive director of the charity’s new trading subsidiary.

The new appointments bring the number of Drinkaware board members to 12.

“It gives me great pleasure to be welcoming three new trustees and a non-executive director to Drinkaware,” said Sir Leigh Lewis, chair of the Drinkaware board of trustees

“They will each bring a wealth of experience to our mission of reducing alcohol related harm and their wide range of skills and knowledge will enhance the board’s breadth and independence. We are very much looking forward to working with them all.”

Rommel Moseley, Drinkaware’s director of business and partnerships, will be stepping down from the role after four years to join the Thomson Reuters Foundation as global development director.
