Social Finance announced today, Wednesday 16 February 2022, that Adam Swersky will be its new CEO, subject to FCA approval. He will take up the post in March.
Adam succeeds David Hutchison, CEO since 2009, who announced his intention to stand down at the beginning of last year. David will support the successful transition to a new CEO and will also be building a portfolio of part time roles.
Adam is currently the organisation’s Director of Government and Enterprise. Since joining Social Finance in 2014 he has set up the Health and Employment Partnerships initiative, launching the world’s first social impact bond focused on supporting people with serious mental health problems into employment. Last year the partnership celebrated helping its 1000th client into a job.
Adam was previously a member of the social investment team at Boston Consulting Group. He has also been a secondee to the Clinton Health Access Initiative.
David Blood, Chair of Social Finance, said:
“I am delighted that Adam will be our next CEO. He is passionate about social change and brings a wealth of experience that will be invaluable as we work towards our vision of a fairer world where together we unleash the potential of communities.”
Adam Swersky, incoming CEO, said:
“It’s an honour to have this opportunity to lead the incredibly talented team at Social Finance. We work together with government, social sector partners and communities to help achieve better outcomes for those facing entrenched disadvantage. As we emerge from the pandemic, our mission has never been more important. I’m excited by the opportunities to sustain and grow our impact in the UK and globally.”
