Social Enterprise Mark CIC Board members

Welcome to new Board members

We are pleased to welcome two new members to our Board of Directors.

Professor Linda DrewProfessor Linda Drew is a creative education champion with experience as a board member and trustee in higher education and the creative industries.

Linda said: “I’m delighted to be joining the Board of Directors of Social Enterprise Mark CIC. I know the excellent work the team does, across the UK and internationally. My own experience as a leader in Higher Education confirms that people and society benefit from social enterprises.

Many universities now recognise this in their employability strategies and contribute to developing the diverse talent pool which energises the social enterprise sector. I’m looking forward to helping Lucy and the SEMCIC team to achieve their ambitious future goals with the Mark in Higher Education and other sectors.” 

We are also excited to welcome our first employee representative to the Board.

Richard CobbettRichard Cobbett has worked for Social Enterprise Mark CIC since the very early days and is responsible for the assessment and accreditation process.

Richard said: “I believe it is good practice for a social enterprise to actively engage with its stakeholders – including employees – at all levels, and where possible involve them in top level decision-making structures.

I have worked for the Social Enterprise Mark CIC since its first year and am pleased to take up the inaugural position of employee representative on the Board.”
