Following her appointment in September 2013, Sian has made an outstanding contribution to establishing the Institute as a vibrant centre of ideas and research aimed at advancing our prosperity agenda.
Under her leadership, the Institute has hosted close to 400 events, published more than 40 reports and welcomed an array of high profile guest speakers, including the Mayor of London, the Home Secretary, the Secretary of State for Justice and the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
Fortunately for us, Sian’s involvement with the Legatum family does not end here. She has agreed to Chair the Institute’s Development Committee and will remain an active alumni and participant within the Group, and we look forward to working with her on other projects in the near future.
On behalf of my fellow trustees and colleagues, we would like to thank Sian for her dedication over the past three years, and we wish her all the best for her future endeavours.
In the interim, Toby Baxendale has stepped in as Executive Trustee and will play that role until a new Executive Director is appointed. An active search is underway for a replacement. For those interested in applying, please send enquires to: Emma.Jones@li.com.
Alan McCormick, Chairman of the Legatum Institute Foundation
