John Hibbs Charity CEO

John Hibbs

Founder & CEO
John Hibbs founded The Hibbs Lupus Trust in October 2011 and is responsible for setting the charity's strategic aims, its overall management and leadership.

His role includes crafting strategic objectives, overseeing the trust's operations, and providing inspirational leadership.

He has demonstrated a knack for cultivating fruitful partnerships at both local and national levels, in turn promoting fundraising and awareness for the charity.

In an age where digital presence is paramount, John has leveraged social media and the Trust's website to elevate the profile of lupus. His innovative approach even led to garnering support from MPs and organizing a lupus awareness event hosted by Sarah Brown at Downing Street in 2009, making it the first event of its kind coordinated via Twitter.

John is no stranger to physical challenges if it means generating funds for the charity. His incredible feats include running the London Marathon thrice, cycling a staggering 200 miles from Lupus Way in Liverpool to Lupus Street in London, and participating in numerous half marathons, walks, and fun runs.

John's profound impact on Staffordshire was acknowledged in 2013 when he was nominated for the Staffordshire Volunteer of the Year Award. Furthermore, his effective utilization of social media in his role has consistently landed him on the Top 30 Social CEOs list.
