Business Development Manager


About Dave Thornett

I’ve spent most of my working life working in social enterprise, starting in a small development and buildings preservation trust, eventually managing a multi service sector support agency. Now in my 30th year in the sector, I have been a director of many social enterprises, taking in recycling, childcare, employment support and social investment. Dave is currently Chair of Zest, a development trust in Sheffield and a shareholder of The Gardeners Rest community pub.

I work for Key Fund because the organisation exists to fund high impact organisations in areas of complex, intersecting need and because it provides the opportunity to learn from and engage with a huge range of people within and supporting enterprising communities.
