Meet the Team

Rebecca Middleton, Chief Executive Officer

HBA Support was set up in 2020 by  Rebecca and Emma Middleton. After losing their mum and grandmother to brain aneurysms, Rebecca went through her own battle for diagnosis and subsequent treatment for a right MCA brain aneurysm.

Discovering the lack of balanced and accessible information available, Rebecca founded HBA Support to improve the situation for future patients and their families.

David Salmon, Community and Marketing Manager

David Salmon

David is HBA Support's Community and Marketing Manager. David is an expert in his field, having spent more than ten years working in the charity sector. Prior to joining HBA Support, David ran communications and marketing campaigns for the likes of Parkinson's UK and Volunteering Matters. He brings to the role a passion for putting communities at the heart of any organisation, together with a fundamental belief that not-for-profits should act as collaborators to blur the lines between beneficiaries, supporters and partners. 

David joins a small, part-time team, and will be working to ensure that the future of HBA Support is shaped and defined by its community. He will work to build opportunities for collaboration between stakeholders, clinicians, patients and the wider industry, building engagement to ensure the organisation is able to deliver on its vision of providing much-needed advice and support for those affected by Hereditary Brain Aneurysms.

David will work closely with Rebecca and the senior management team.
