New CEO at iSE - Cathy Brown


You may be aware that iSE's founder and CEO Sarah Crawley MBE is stepping down from her role at the end of June following 20 years of leading and growing iSE. It will be a sad and emotional farewell for many in the sector who have worked closely with Sarah to bring social enterprise to the fore in the city, region, nationally and internationally. Sarah leaves a huge legacy for the sector through her work at iSE and will be greatly missed. 

The board welcomes Cathy Brown as iSE's new CEO. Cathy brings 30 years of experience across the public, private and third sectors including delivering strategic transformation programmes for a FTSE 100 company and engaging audiences around business change, leadership and innovation. We are sure Cathy will lead iSE positively into the future. 

Cathy says “the opportunity to join iSE, at such an important time for the city of Birmingham and its people, is one I am thrilled to be taking on. There are challenges ahead, but some great opportunities too and I look forward to working with our West Midlands social entrepreneurs to strengthen the local social economy".

Cathy will be working alongside Sarah throughout June as she 'hands over the reins' and will take over as iSEs new CEO on the 1st of July. We hope you will join us in wishing Sarah farewell and welcoming Cathy to iSE.
