Foundation recruits new staff team

Following a strategic review of the Foundation’s future, the trustees are delighted to announce the appointment of a new staff team to support the development of the Foundation.

At this point in the Foundation’s history, the trustees have recognised the importance of investing in the professional management of its important work.  The trustees are delighted to have engaged Jonathan Freeman as the Foundation’s new Interim CEO and Michelle O’Brien as Foundation Manager.

  • Jonathan Freeman has extensive senior experience in the charitable sector, having been Managing Director at The Prince of Wales’ Mosaic initiative before establishing his own consultancy advising a range of high-profile charities, philanthropists and social enterprises. Jonathan is also CEO of the CareTech Foundation.
  • Michelle O’Brien has an impressive portfolio of charity roles under her belt, including important roles at Business in the Community and City & Guilds Group, with important expertise in grant-making and community development.

Investment in the new staff team will ensure that the Foundation operates at the highest levels of propriety and governance, as well as ensuring that the Foundation can deliver against its new strategic priorities.

 

 

We are delighted to welcome Jonathan and Michelle to the Foundation.  Both have excellent pedigrees in delivering real impact throughout their careers in the charitable sectors and will be invaluable in supporting the trustees as we begin the next chapter of the Foundation’s mission.
