New Economics Foundation announces new CEO

I am delighted to announce today that Dr Dhananjayan (Danny) Sriskandarajah, the CEO of Oxfam GB is going to be our new CEO at the New Economics Foundation from January 2024, replacing Miatta Fahnbulleh. Alongside a deep-rooted commitment to tackling inequality, Dr Danny Sriskandarajah brings to NEF extensive experience leading organisations across the civil society, intergovernmental and policy worlds at a national and international level.

The press release announcing the appointment is here.

It was great to be involved in the recruitment process as part of the NEF Board, working closely with my colleagues Alison Cowan, Keren Jones, Tariq Kazi, Mary Riddell and our Chair, Lord Bob Kerslake. Thank you to Harry Marven at Green Park who led the search.

I am looking forward to supporting Danny and NEF in its next chapter of transforming the economy so it works for people and the planet.
