stephen-hill-obeStephen Hill, former Chair of Trustees at Action on Hearing Loss, was awarded an OBE for services to people with hearing problems and charity in the New Year Honours list announced today.

Over his eight years on the Board, including the past three as Chair, Stephen oversaw a period of rapid growth at Action on Hearing Loss, including expansion of its community based services and a doubling of its biomedical research programme.

Stephen stepped down in late 2016 to become the new chair of Alzheimer’s Society.

Paul Breckell, Action on Hearing Loss Chief Executive said:

“I’m delighted that Stephen has had this richly deserved honour for services to people with hearing loss. It is a fitting end to his successful tenure as Chair of Action on Hearing Loss, who are now directly supporting over 100,000 people every year”.
