The National PKU Alliance Expands Leadership and Names Christine Brown as Executive Director
Date:4/7/2009

Experienced Leader Brings 15 Years of Nonprofit Expertise to National Organization

SPRINGFIELD, Va., April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- The National PKU Alliance (NPKUA), the only national organization dedicated to supporting those affected by the genetic disorder phenylketonuria (PKU), today announced that it has selected Christine Brown to be its first Executive Director. Brown brings extensive experience in nonprofit management, program development, fundraising and advocacy relations to the role.

As the NPKUA continues to grow, Brown will work directly with the Board of Directors and organization volunteers to advance the NPKUA mission and to ensure that the PKU community has a strong national voice. One of Brown's key priorities will be to encourage additional local organizations to take advantage of the benefits of membership. In the next few months, Brown will lead a membership drive and encourage alliance groups to share best practices in areas such as fundraising, advocacy and education.

"As the only national coalition of local and regional organizations serving the PKU community, we needed an experienced nonprofit professional who could further advance our ambitious plans," said NPKUA President Dick Michaux. "Brown has a very successful history of working with healthcare coalitions in tobacco control. As a result, we feel this makes her an ideal choice to move the organization forward."

"I am very excited and honored to be chosen as the first Executive Director of the National PKU Alliance," Brown said. "After spending the past 15 years building and leading nonprofit organizations, I look forward to doing so for the NPKUA. As a mother of two children with PKU, I am passionate about creating awareness for the cause and furthering the NPKUA's mission." Before joining the NPKUA as Executive Director, Brown also provided her expertise to the organization as a volunteer.
