Cornerstone, the social investment vehicle founded by former Partnerships for Schools' boss Tim Byles, has recruited another of the quango's alumni as its new director.
David Burns joins the not-for-profit Cornerstone as its latest director, after spending nine years at PfS and its successor, the Education Funding Agency.
Burns commented: “After over 12 years at the heart of developing and establishing major investment programmes for central government, it is a natural move for me to work for a social investment company like Cornerstone.
"I am especially pleased to be involved in the early stages of the company and being able help to bring a strong vision to reality.”
Burns is not the first PfS alumni to join Byles at Cornerstone. He follows operations director Sal Wilson and property director Harry Scarff, both of whom were formerly directors at PfS.
