Currently director of research and innovation at Ashoka, a network of social entrepreneurs, Adam Lent will take up the new post before the end of the year.

Previously Mr Lent has been director of the action and research centre at the Royal Society for the Arts, and head of economics and social affairs at the Trade Union Congress.

He said: “NLGN has a well-deserved reputation for helping its members seek out and implement the ideas that can deliver strong public services at a time of constrained resources. With the challenges for local government only growing, the NLGN’s mission is more relevant than ever.”

LGC previously reported how Mr Parker had taken up a new post as corporate director of strategy at Redbridge LBC after six years in charge of NLGN.
