Our Senior Fellow Danny Kruger takes up new senior advisory role in Government

Today we say goodbye to Danny Kruger MBE, who has been appointed as the Government’s new civil society tsar.

Danny, who led the Legatum Institute’s The Country We Want To Be programme, will be joining the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport as an Expert Adviser for Civil Society, working with Secretary of State Matt Hancock.

This builds on Danny’s extensive work at the Legatum Institute, which focused on creating the strong and inclusive society Britain needs if it is to address the challenges of the twenty-first century, and build a lasting legacy of prosperity for this and future generations.

Commenting on Danny’s departure, our CEO, Philippa Stroud, said: “I am delighted that Danny has been asked to take his ideas, talents and vision from the Legatum Institute into Government. He is a passionate advocate of creating more just, integrated and connected communities, and we wish him all the best in helping shape the Government’s civil society agenda.”
