Top of the list once again was Joe Saxton, chair of the Institute of Fundraising. UK Fundraising’s Howard Lake made it to number 11.Joe Saxton retains his top position, the first time that the same person has retained their top position in the four years of the poll. He is joined by 23 new entrants, attributed by the magazine to, in part, the establishment of the Fundraising Standards Board and changes in the regulatory and government offices.Fundraising practitioners, including both fundraisers and consultants, are more prominent on this year’s list compared to last years. This year there are 16 fundraisers on the list, up from eight last year, and 15 fundraising consultants, up from nine.
