A new Chair for mySociety

Genevieve Maitland HudsonA warm welcome to our new Chair of Trustees Genevieve Maitland Hudson, whose appointment was formally confirmed this week. We’re delighted to have found her!

In Gen’s own words she is “a researcher and policy advisor with fifteen years’ experience of leading and supporting organisations in the areas of social measurement, social innovation, social impact, social entrepreneurship and social investment.”

She currently works as Deputy CEO at Social Investment Business, leading on impact measurement research, data, communications, policy, business systems and business development and spearheading innovation in grant-making and social investment funds.

Gen brings a deep knowledge of and interest in democracy, as well as a collaborative and consensus building approach to decision making, and an enthusiasm and passion for impact — so a useful and needed set of skills for mySociety.

And coupled with this happy news, the inevitable need to say goodbye to our outgoing Chair. We give our heartfelt thanks to Catherine Brown, for her huge contributions to mySociety over the last three years, and wish her all the best for her next endeavours.
