Clore Social Leadership CEO retires

Shaks Ghosh will be retiring next month and stepping down from her role as chief executive of Clore Social Leadership, it was announced today.

Clore Social’s current director of development, Nadia Alomar, will be stepping up to take over from Ghosh at the beginning of July.

Ghosh joined in 2015, leading “dramatic growth in the organisation, from 20 fellows a year when she started to more than 800 leaders a year now taking part in Clore Social’s programmes and courses”.

Prior to joining Clore Social, Ghosh had previously held CEO roles at Crisis and the Private Equity Foundation.

She intends to stay close to the voluntary sector and will continue to work on leadership in Black and Asian communities.

Reflecting on her career and time at Clore Social, Ghosh said: “The voluntary sector is the nation’s most precious asset and it has been an honour to serve it for almost 40 years. Watching thousands of Clore Social leaders develop and take on ever-challenging roles has been a privilege and I wish them all the luck in the world.”

Alomar currently leads fundraising and business development for the organisation and was previously Clore Social’s director of marketing and external affairs.

Prior to joining in 2019 she led the communications and marketing functions at national organisations, including UK Youth and Brook Young People, and international organisations such as The World of NGOs and CIRSE (Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe).

She said: “It is a privilege to be succeeding Shaks who leaves an awe-inspiring legacy at Clore Social. Under her leadership, the organisation has experienced remarkable growth and innovation, with an unwavering commitment to democratising leadership.

"This year is no exception, as we continue to find new ways to support social leaders at all levels to develop and enhance the skills, resilience and capabilities they need to lead through these complex and uncertain times."
