Suresh Farewelled Today

02-Dec-2016 It is with considerable sadness that Epilepsy Association of WA (EWA) is farewelling Chief Executive Officer Suresh Rajan this week, after six years at the helm.


Suresh has had an enormous impact on the lives of thousands of West Australians coping with epilepsy, through his passionate advocacy of their rights to live life to the full, have their needs better considered and follow their dreams. 


His focus on raising awareness of the challenges that epilepsy presents, in all aspects of people’s lives, has broken down many misconceptions of this common neurological condition. 


The EWA Board would like to thank him on behalf of all our members and the wider community for the tremendous amount that he has achieved and wish him well for the future.


His final day is 2nd December and we have appointed Tasmin Wright to take on the responsibilities of Acting Chief Executive Officer until the position is filled on a permanent basis early next year.



Deborah Martens

President
