Press Release

We’re looking for a Chief Executive

Today we announce that our Founding Director Ben Rogers will be leaving Centre for London at the end of January.

Ben founded Centre for London in 2011 and under his leadership the Centre has become a vital voice in London and urban policy making with a staff of 23, an international reputation and a proud record of impact.

We are now looking for a Chief Executive to lead the organisation into the next exciting chapter of its development. Deputy Director Richard Brown will lead the Centre during any transitional period.

Ben Rogers, Founding Director, Centre for London said:

“It’s been a decade since I set up Centre for London and I feel it’s time for new leader to take the reins. I am very proud of what we have achieved and will always be grateful to everyone who has supported us – trustees, colleagues, funders, advisers and followers. I was born and brought up in London and it’s been an honour to work for a city that has given me so much and which I love. I am leaving behind a brilliant team and I know Centre for London will continue its important work helping to create a fairer, greener, healthier and more prosperous capital.”

Liz Peace CBE, Chair of Trustees, Centre for London said:

“I’d like to thank Ben, on behalf of Centre for London’s trustees, staff and many friends and supporters, for all he has done for the Centre and for our capital. He will be a genuinely hard act to follow. But there has never been a more pressing need for an independent London think tank and Ben leaves behind him an outstanding organisation, well positioned for the journey ahead. I very much look forward to working with a new Chief Executive, as Centre for London continues to go from strength to strength.”
