Welcoming COO Lesley Glen


We are delighted to welcome Lesley Glen to the KidsOR family in the newly-created Chief Operating Officer role. She will bring over 30 years of experience within the finance, business and strategy sectors. 

She joins us from the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS), where she also served as COO for 9 years. Lesley will play a key, transformative role in the provision of safe paediatric surgery to low- and middle-income countries. 

"It’s an exciting time to be joining KidsOR as the charity plans for new developments and installations over the next few years. I’m proud and excited to be joining Kids OR at such a key time - I’m looking forward to playing my part in driving the ambitious plans to enable safe surgery for ever more children around the world.” 

Lesley graduated in Law from Glasgow University followed by undertaking her accountancy training at Strathclyde Regional Council, becoming a CIPFA accountant and prize-winner. 

David Cunningham, CEO of KidsOR, said: "Lesley brings a wealth of experience from a variety of sectors which will help us reach new audiences while bringing fresh ideas to the way we operate. 

“These additional skills will be fundamental in helping us drive change across policy, behaviour and social views while continuing our drive to grow as a charity, making Lesley a real asset to the team.”
