The International Kidney Cancer Coalition (IKCC) announced today that Rachel Giles will be stepping down as Chief Executive Officer.

This was a mutual decision made by Ms. Giles and the Board. 

The Board is pleased to announce that Deborah Maskens, kidney cancer survivor, founding member of the IKCC and past Board Vice Chair, has volunteered to join our organization as a member of the newly constituted Interim Management Committee. This Committee will be chaired by Dr. Michael Jewett, Board Chair, with Vice Chair Bryan Lewis, Board Governance Committee Chair, Anne Wilson and COO Julia Black.

We thank Ms. Giles for her 13 years of service at the IKCC and wish her the best in her future endeavours.
