Maria Timson Samra CEO

Chief Executive

Maria, who took over as Interim CEO of Tŷ Hafan in May 2020, was appointed CEO of Tŷ Hafan on a permanent basis in March 2021.

Maria brings a wealth of local and international experience and expertise to the charity as we battle the ongoing impact of the coronavirus and the inevitable disruption it has caused to many fundraising sources, so vital to our provision of care for children with life-limiting conditions and their families.

Educated in Ireland, Maria brings extensive international experience gained across a range of industries. With a passion for, and sound understanding of the Charity, Maria is a former Chair and Trustee of Tŷ Hafan and a long-time supporter. Her previous roles in Wales include Interim CIO/Head of BIS at Welsh Water, Transformation Director at Barclaycard and Managing Director at KPMG. She takes the helm at a time when Tŷ Hafan is facing both unprecedented demand for its services, and one of the most challenging financial and operational periods in its history.
