Keith NewtonAfter 18 years as Executive Director and Consultant Administrator, Keith Newton has left the World Federation of Neurology on 31 July 2016. He was recruited to the WFN in 1998 by Dr Frank Clifford Rose and Lord Walton, and has seen the organisation grow and change enormously.

Keith wishes WFN members to know that he feels very 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 organisation.

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.


Wolfgang Grisold
WFN Secretary General
