Nick Tyrone leaves CentreForum to become Chief Executive of British Influence

Nick Tyrone has left the CentreForum think tank, where he was Executive Director, to become Chief Executive of  British Influence. His old job has been split in two.

Anthony Rowlands will continue as Executive Director, Head of Resource and Operations while Natalie Perera, who previously worked in both the Department for Education and the Cabinet Office, joins the think tank as Executive Director, Head of Research. This is welcome, but the organisation still has a long way to go in getting anything like decent gender balance. Four out of its five trustees are men and its advisory board has 21 men and 3 women. Given that they are developing policy ideas, it’s difficult to have confidence that they will fully have tested the impact of their ideas on women and girls.

UPDATE: Natalie was quick to come back to me on Twitter about this:

Former Liberal Democrat MP for Yeovil David Laws remains the Executive Chairman, overseeing an extensive programme of work on education, mental health and justice reform.

David Laws said:

 We are sad to see Nick go, but CentreForum wishes him all the best in his important new role at British Influence. Meanwhile, the addition of new members of the team will help the think tank in its aim to refocus on our core priority areas, including education, mental health and rehabilitation.

    Has he left because the Cantre Fourm was the home of British lack of Influence? 😉
