Communications Strategist Kristin Holloway Joins AFTD Board


AFTD announced today that Kristin Holloway has joined its Board of Directors, effective April 18.

A communications professional with more than 10 years of experience as a strategist for high-growth technology companies, Ms. Holloway joins like-minded individuals, business leaders, professionals, and philanthropists from a variety of disciplines providing Board leadership for the organization. Her involvement will be instrumental in AFTD’s work to raise awareness, a crucial step toward bringing about compassionate care, effective support, and a future free of FTD.

After experiencing a sequence of unexplained changes in behavior and personality, Ms. Holloway’s husband, Lee Holloway, was diagnosed with behavioral variant FTD in April 2017. A gifted technology pioneer, Mr. Holloway co-founded Cloudflare, a company dedicated to making the Internet safer, faster and more reliable.

To honor Lee’s legacy, in 2019, Kristin and the Holloway family established The Holloway Fund for Help and Hope at AFTD. Donations to this fund will be designated 50 percent to AFTD’s support programs and 50 percent to research.

The Holloway family’s story of Lee’s diagnosis is featured in an article, “What Happened to Lee?”, in the May 2020 issue of WIRED.
