CfEE Founder James Croft appointed Editor of Education Investor magazine

Investor Publishing appoints CfEE Founder James Croft as new Editor of EducationInvestor magazine.

Investor Publishing today announced the appointment of CfEE Founder, now Chair, James Croft, as their new editor. As a frequent contributor to the magazine, event speaker and perennial judge of EducationInvestor's annual Awards, James has enjoyed a close relationship with the Investor community for several years. 

EducationInvestor provides a portfolio of specialist business information, events, and crucial support services to advisors, investors and operators globally, from early years, schools, post-16 and adult education, through HE.

Speaking of his new role, James said, 'EducationInvestor occupies a unique position in the landscape of the education sector, and there is great potential for it to grow its reach and influence from among its core constituencies, and beyond. This is the right time to take forward Investor Publishing’s ambitious plans for international development. It will be a great challenge.’

With James transitioning to the role of Chair, the CfEE Board are now engaged in a search for his successor. For the time being, until the New Year, James remains CfEE's strategic and business lead, as well as maintaining overall responsibility for the Centre's events and outreach. From January until April 2018, he will continue to host and chair the Centre's events, with the management of this side of the operation passing to a Secretariat.

Addressing CfEE's many friends and supporters, James said of his work establishing the Centre that it had been the most rewarding experience of his career to date. 

'I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors and supporters for their continuing engagement and support for our work, especially through our recent re-naming and re-definition as the Centre for Education Economics. I also want to express again my firm conviction in the potential of education economics as a guide for reform and improvements to both efficiency and equity in the provision of education services around the world. It is my belief that the Centre for Education Economics has a key role to play in this and I look forward to the next chapter in its development.'
