New members join the Future of London board and we say a couple of goodbyes

As Future of London launches a new programme of research and events, we welcome four new directors to our board and say goodbye to two.

Firstly, thanks to alumnus Leanne Keltie (top left), Principal New Homes Development Project Manager at LB Islington, and co-founder and former chair David Lunts (top middle) for their dedicated support of Future of London. (You can read more about David’s role in founding Future of London here.)

We would also like to welcome two new alumni to the board: Rumi Bose, Regeneration Project Manager at RB Greenwich and Esther Everett, Head of Design at London Legacy Development Corporation.

Finally, we are delighted that two long-standing Future of London champions are also joining the board: Philip Graham, Executive Director of Good Growth at Greater London Authority, and Hilary Satchwell, Director at Tibbalds.

After our recent Board meeting, here’s what the new members had to say about the challenges and opportunities ahead:

Rumi Bose, RB Greenwich

“I hope to continue to forge a path of learning for myself and bring insight and direction to this vital London organisation in its mission of sharing knowledge and shaping sustainable, equitable places for the communities we serve.”

Esther Everett, London Legacy Development Corporation

“I am delighted to join the board at a time when building better cities fit for 21st living is ever more important. I am passionate about Future of London’s objective of sharing knowledge, leadership and expanding the network.”

Philip Graham, Greater London Authority

“The challenges and opportunities facing London are changing faster than ever, and the need for diverse leaders with the capability and creativity to address them has never been greater. Future of London has a critical role to play.”

Hilary Satchwell, Tibbalds

“I am really pleased to bring SME experience working with the public sector to deliver public good. I am looking forward to helping them build even stronger networks and learning for the future.”
