A tribute to Liam Kane
Liam Kane, MBE, ELBA’s former Chief Executive has passed away following a short illness. Liam joined ELBA in 2001 and found a small organisation with an earnest desire to do good in east London. He picked it up and over the space of 14 years turned it into one of the most impactful and dynamic organisations working for the benefit of east London. He left a thriving organisation of over 40 people, with partners throughout the business, community and civic sectors. The fact that we celebrate our 30th anniversary this year is in no small part down to him. Liam was particularly committed to helping the young people of east London, recognising their talent and untapped potential, and fighting to make sure they got a fair go at the jobs and careers that they deserve.
He loved ELBA, and we loved him, and he will never be forgotten.
Liam Kane RIP
