Sarah Ebanja - newly appointed Chief Executive of the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation
Sarah Ebanja has been appointed as Chief Executive of the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation - the Club’s award-winning charitable body.
In a double move, Nikki Kelly, who had successfully covered the position on an interim basis during Spurs' season at Wembley, has been promoted to Director of Programmes.
Sarah is currently chair of Newlon Housing Trust and the College of Haringey, Enfield & North East London and has worked for over 20 years at senior level in local and regional government.
She gained vast experience working at the London Boroughs of Lewisham, Hackney and Islington, and also as Deputy Chief Executive of the London Development Agency. Sarah was previously chair of both the Bernie Grant Arts Centre and the Stephen Lawrence Trust.,
Donna-Maria Cullen, Chair of Trustees, Tottenham Hotspur Foundation said: “Sarah brings a wealth of experience coupled with great drive and energy. She is widely recognised for her work in areas that are the focus of our Foundation’s delivery and, indeed, has spent years in North Tottenham."
With Spurs set to move into a superb new multi-million pound stadia later this year, the work of the Foundation in the community will continue to be pivotal in one of the most deprived areas of London.
"The Club’s new stadium project is kick-starting regeneration and has already delivered new jobs, homes and schools," added Donna.
"The work of the Foundation has been, and will increasingly be, instrumental in bringing benefits to the local community in what is one of the most deprived areas of London.
“Like us, Sarah is committed to bettering opportunities for individuals, communities and neighbourhoods, principally through creating educational and employment opportunities. We are delighted to have Sarah join us at this key time.”
