Can's Blakebrough to concentrate on Breakthrough

Adele Blakebrough, chief executive of social enterprise support group Can, will step down in September to work exclusively on the organisation's social investment fund, Breakthrough.

Blakebrough will hand over to Andrew Croft, who is director of Can’s third sector office space facility, Mezzanine. She will continue to work on Breakthrough, a partnership with private equity firm Permira, as a senior consultant for Can, and remain as chair of the Breakthrough advisory panel.

“Andrew has done a fantastic job in building Can Mezzanine,” Blakebrough said. “He brings first-rate business skills to Can’s mission of scaling up social enterprise. I look forward to working with him closely as he leads Can to a new level of success.”

As part of Can’s reorganisation, Kate Markey, currently communications and human resources director, will become deputy chief executive.

Blakebrough is a board member of the Social Enterprise Coalition and a trustee of the Charities Aid Foundation.
