Meet The Team

Karen Tyrell

Board Member

I have 20 years’ experience of working in senior charity roles. In my day job, I am an Executive Director, at Humankind national drug, alcohol and homelessness charity. I’m responsible for a range of corporate services including finance, HR and our wider profile and influence.

I’ve been involved in communications and marketing at a senior level for many years. Prior to joining Humankind, I worked at Addaction as part of the Executive Team, and before that, I worked for KCA as Director of Development and Marketing, which included responsibility for mergers and acquisitions. I began my career as a drug worker, having started out as a volunteer.

I bring a detailed knowledge of how charities run as well as knowledge of business development, media and marketing to bear for The Avalon Group. I love being involved in new things and am passionate about helping charities to grow and develop.
