Changes to the ORG Board

We have two fresh faces and one departure from the Open Rights Group Board, which oversees the running of ORG.

Our new Board Directors are Harry Metcalfe and Simon Collister.

Dan MacQuillan meanwhile has had to step down owing to pressure of other commitments.

Harry is a web entrepreneur and activist. He was a founding supporter of ORG and hopes in particular to drive our involvement with public sector information reuse.

Simon has NGO experience in PR and policy roles at NGOs and now works on digital thought leadership and creative strategy for a public affairs firm.

We’d like to thank Dan for his contribution in the last year, and wish him all the best with his work and young family.

The Board seeks to make new appointments once a year. Thanks to those who worked on the appointments process.
