SurvivorsUK CEO, Alex Feis-Bryce, has been named as one of The CEO Publication’s top 20 dynamic CEOs in Britain.
Alex joined SurvivorsUK as its new CEO in late 2018, and since then has paved the way for men and non-binary survivors seeking support, all while navigating the complexities of a global pandemic.
“When I first became CEO it was clear to me just how genuine the commitment to being inclusive, welcoming and non-judgmental is throughout the whole team – one of our clients once described SurvivorsUK as being like a warm hug and I really believe that,” Alex told the CEO Publication.
“As one of a handful of specialist organisations in the UK supporting men and non-binary people who experience sexual violence we have a responsibility to speak out, raise awareness and challenge the prevailing myths and I think we do this well.”
“I believe passionately that we’re at our strongest when we feel valued and are united by a common purpose. That’s particularly important for an organization like SurvivorsUK where we’re supporting people who have experienced something horrible and may feel like they have nowhere else to turn.” He adds, “The work is hard and emotionally challenging so it’s really important that we feel a passion for what we do. Being generous to myself, I’d say that one of my strengths is being a good, thoughtful decision-maker but I also really value input from my team and surround myself with clever, ethical people who both challenge and support me in different ways.”
