We are excited to announce we have appointed three new Non-Executive Directors to our Board, as we embark on an ambitious growth trajectory.
These new Directors, recruited through online board recruitment platform NuRole, bring a wealth of valuable experience to help us drive the organisation forward.
Alison Brown leads on partnership opportunities as Director of Community and External Engagement at the Open University, helping the faculty grow its income and influence across the UK. Her expertise includes sustainable growth, strategic communications and social impact. She holds several other non-executive roles and acts as a disability adviser to businesses in various sectors, drawing on her lived experience.
Kerryn Krige is a Senior Lecturer in Teaching Practice at the Marshall Institute for Social Entrepreneurship and Philanthropy at the London School of Economics (LSE). She is also co-author of the book ‘The Disruptors, social entrepreneurs re-inventing business and society’ and has led two mapping studies of social entrepreneurship, with a focus on poverty and inequality.
Professor Karen Stanton is a consultant working in Higher Education. She is the former Vice-Chancellor of York St John University (2015-2019) and Solent University, Southampton (2019-2023). She led both institutions through a period of growth and transformation. Karen is passionate about widening access and participation to education and reimagining the delivery of education in a digital age. Throughout her career, she has emphasized the social purpose and impact of universities and their role as social enterprises.
We also welcome a new employee representative to the Board – Zoe Campbell has taken over from Rachel Fell, who has completed her two year tenure in the role.
We would like to extend our thanks to Sara Burgess, who has recently stepped down from the Board after seven years.
