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.
