We are thrilled to hear the wonderful news that Vivian Hunt's remarkable achievements have been recognised in the form of a damehood in the New Year Honours 2018. Vivian, who was a trustee of Action on Addiction for ten years from 2007, is awarded Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) for services to the economy and women in business.

Vivian is the Managing Partner for McKinsey & Company’s United Kingdom and Ireland offices, and prior to her retirement from Action on Addiction's trustee board in September 2017 was our inspirational Vice Chair.

Everyone at Action on Addiction sends their warmest congratulations to Vivian for this very well deserved award.
