Heart Kids welcome new CEO

On behalf of the Board, we are delighted to announce the appointment of Mark Longbottom as the new Chief Executive of Heart Kids New Zealand.   Kate Figgins finished with us at the beginning of May and we are very grateful for all that she did for Heart Kids.

Mark joins us with over 20 years of not for profit experience both in the UK and New Zealand, leading fundraising, events, service delivery, community engagement, and commercial functions in well-known charities such as Auckland City Mission, New Zealand Aids Foundation, Prince's Trust, and St. James' Place Charitable Foundation. Most recently Mark has been CEO of the Auckland Foundation.

He is passionate about Heart Kids NZ, his cousin was born with a heart condition in NZ over 40 years ago and underwent a lifesaving heart operation. He understands the challenges faced by our members and is looking forward to working with everyone to help our organisation thrive.
