Keith Newton

After 18 years as executive director and consultant administrator, Keith Newton left the World Federation of Neurology (WFN) July 31, 2016. He was recruited to the WFN in 1998 by Dr. Frank Clifford Rose and Lord John Nicholas Walton, and has seen the organization grow and change enormously.

Keith wishes WFN members to know that he feels privileged to have been part of the WFN and hopes he made a contribution to its important work. He thanks all those who have assisted him in the past, in particular Susan Bilger and Laura Druce for their hard work, dedication, and loyalty to the organization.

He wishes everyone the very best for the future and would always be delighted to see any friends who may be passing through Edinburgh, Scotland, where he and his family now live.

The WFN is indebted to Keith for his long and committed service, and wishes him the best for the future.

WFN Secretary General
