New Philanthropy Capital are excited to announce the new Chair Elect of their trustee board is Vaughan Lindsay. He will chair the trustees in the new year, as Richard Atterbury steps down following six years in the role.
Vaughan comes to NPC from Leapfrog Investments, a leading Impact Investor. It invests in companies that meet the needs of low-income emerging consumers in Africa and Asia. LeapFrog has $1bn assets under management, investments in 20 companies, and reaches over 120m low income people.
Prior to that Vaughan had a distinguished career in the social sector. He was CEO of the Dartington Hall Trust, Deputy Chief Executive of the NCVO, and Deputy Director of Shelter. As well as these roles, Vaughan has also enjoyed a career in the private sector, including as an Associate Principal at Mckinsey and Co, and at Procter and Gamble.
I am delighted to be joining NPC. I think the sector needs the independent voice and thinking that NPC provides and I’m excited to be joining an organisation that clearly has a huge amount of impact across the sector. In some ways though, they have only just got started. There is much more than can be achieved and needs to be achieved for the sector to deliver the impact it needs to have, to solve some of the intractable issues we see in society today.
Vaughan Lindsay, Chair Elect
After six very enjoyable years at the helm of NPC, I am delighted to pass on the torch to Vaughan Lindsay who will take over early in the New Year. The need for NPC to pursue its mission of improving the impact of the social sector is stronger than ever and I know that Vaughan will bring insight, a wealth of experience and lots of energy to this post.
It has been such a privilege to support the NPC team, to work with my fellow trustees and to spend time with so many committed partners and stakeholders
Richard Atterbury, departing Chair
I am very much looking forward to working with Vaughan as we take NPC forward to its next chapter in trying to help the sector do as much social good as it can. Thanks to Richard for a great six years which I have enjoyed enormously.
Dan Corry, CEO
