An exciting addition to Tinder Foundation

I’m delighted to let you know that our new Business & Innovation Director, Adam Micklethwaite, started at Tinder Foundation today.

It’s great to have Adam joining our Senior Management Team, working closely with me, Charlotte, Margaret as well as the rest of the team. Adam’s Director role will be focused on:

  • Innovation: lead on trialling, testing and implementing new business ideas. Working closely with Alice on research
  • Business Development: developing bids and pitches to Trusts/Foundations and developing our commercial offers
  • Marketing: Working closely with Anna on developing our brands, and our network campaigns

Adam was previously Deputy Director at the Department of Business Innovation & Skills (BIS) working in the Enterprise Department. Adam led BIS’s work on developing business support services, and he worked closely with the Entrepreneurship programme that BIS delivers.

During the selection process Adam impressed us with his expertise, intelligence, and commitment to social enterprise. I’m really looking forward to working with him.

Day One will be full of meetings with people in the team. Tomorrow we’re off to London for our Social Housing & Digital Inclusion Event (there’s still time to book a place), and I’ll be blogging about it later this week.
