The Board of Directors of INTERIGHTS are pleased to announce that on 15 February 2010 Danny Silverstone will take up the post of INTERIGHTS’ Executive Director. He takes over from Jeremy McBride, the organisation’s Chair who has also been acting as interim Executive Director.
Danny has worked extensively on equality and diversity policies and programmes in the United Kingdom and, in particular, was the Chief Executive of the former Commission for Racial Equality. He has also led a statutory grant maker with an annual budget of £28,000,000 and has had a senior level local government career which included chief officer roles in education, diversity and human resources. Most recently Danny was chief executive of London Remade, an environmental not for profit business active in sustainable procurement, waste and recycling.
