Alex Williams

Treasurer and Trustee

I’m delighted to be joining Dravet Syndrome UK as Trustee and Treasurer. 

I’m currently the Chief Finance Officer at Axis Spine Technologies, a company that develops implant systems to improve the lives of people undergoing spinal fusion surgery. Before this, I spent two decades working in financial leadership roles in life sciences, medical devices and technology sectors. 

I’ve always had a passion for working with different people to create solutions that have a meaningful impact on patients’ lives. Over the last seven years, while working for a life sciences company, I saw how challenging life is for those families living with Dravet Syndrome, particularly in the areas of under-diagnosis and family support. I knew I wanted to give something back to the Dravet Syndrome community, so it’s a great privilege to join a charity with such an admirable mission.
