The Chairman and Trustees of The Slynn Foundation wish to announce the retirement of its Executive Director, Ms Alison Fenney, on the 31st December, 2020.
During Alison’s eight years with us she has tirelessly supported the work of our incredible volunteers who devote their expertise, time and effort to promoting the rule of law and in return witness the huge esteem and respect in which they are held by their counterparts all over the world.
Some of Alison’s enduring memories are watching the students at the Law School in Asmara experience Sir Peter Cresswell’s lecture and attending the presentation of the insignia of the Knighthood of the Order of Skanderburg to the late Sir Henry Brooke by the President of Albania in recognition of his and the Foundation’s work. Alison worked together with the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law to assist a visiting group of Palestinian judges and was a part of the Slynn Foundation team which secured funding for the current Foundation project in Tanzania.
We would like to thank Alison for her service over the past eight years and hope she will enjoy her retirement.
We are delighted to announce the appointment of our new Executive Director, Mrs Katherine Eden Haig who will take up her duties with the Foundation on the 1 st January, 2021.
Katherine is an experienced senior manager who has been working with associations and charities as an independent consultant.
Katherine has previously worked with a number of legal associations including the Commonwealth Lawyers Association (CLA), the British Institute for International and Comparative Law (BIICL) and the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law. She holds postgraduate qualifications in strategic and international organisation management and will assist the Trustees with the next stages of the Foundation’s growth in 2021 and beyond.
We would like to welcome Katherine and we look forward to working with her in the New Year.
