CMRE appoints CfBT’s Neil McIntosh as president

The Centre for the Study of Market Reform of Education (CMRE) think tank has appointed Neil McIntosh CBE to the newly created role of president.
 
McIntosh was previously chief executive of the CfBT Education Trust, a global provider of education services and consultancy. Its activities include running schools, supporting government education reform programmes and carrying out school inspections.
 
Prior to joining CfBT, he was director of Shelter, the housing and homelessness charity.

Westminster-based CMRE aims to improve understanding of the benefits of market forces in the education sector.

McIntosh said he was “honoured” to be its first president.
 
“CMRE has, in a relatively short time, established a reputation for innovative research, bringing challenging perspectives to bear on how markets, and features of the way they function, may be utilised to create a more conducive environment for education,” he said.
 
CMRE has appointed other new members to its board including: Montrose Public Affairs managing director Patrick Watson; Elin Twigge, deputy managing director of the lobbyists PLMR; and Tim Evans, professor of business and political economy at Middlesex University London.
 
CMRE founding director James Croft said of the new appointments: “Neil McIntosh has been at the forefront of developments in education policy over two decades, and between them our board members advise an impressive number of organisations seeking to contribute to shaping the education policy landscape. Their insight will be invaluable.”
