NPC chief steps downCharity Insight Contributor
Martin Brookes is to step down from his role as chief executive of New Philanthropy Capital (NPC) in September. A replacement has not yet been recruited.
Brookes, who has been with the charity think tank and consultancy for ten years, including three years at its helm, is to return to the financial services sector.
He said: "I am very proud of NPC and what it has already achieved in its first ten years. I know it will go on to do so much more in the future, helping charities have an even greater impact on people's lives. Although it is time for me to move on to a new challenge, I will remain an ardent supporter and fan of NPC.
"I think that charities and commerce have a lot to learn from each other. I have long believed that it should be commonplace for people to leave charities and join the commercial sector, and vice versa," says Brookes.
NPC's board has appointed the executive recruitment firm, Attenti, to lead the search for Brookes' successor.
