Marc Whitmore to join
UpRising as Chief Executive

06 March 2020


Marc Whitmore, Partner at More for nine years, will take up his new role with the national youth leadership development organisation in April.

Marc joined More Partnership from YouthNet (now The Mix) in 2011. From the beginning, his passion for education made him a driving force behind our work in the schools sector, and he has played a lead in some of our most enduring international relationships in higher education.

Marc's work has focused on helping organisations to find their own voice, to celebrate what makes them distinctive, raising sights and advancing great ambitions with more than 80 different clients around the world.

Behind the scenes, Marc leaves a lasting impact on our company, too. A formidable debater, he always challenged us to understand the other side of the argument and has played an important role in shaping our values and stewarding us through a period of structural change as part of our management team.

Commenting on behalf of More Partnership, Rachel Hall said, “Marc is a valued member of the More family, and a wonderful friend and colleague - we'll miss him, and the joy and challenge he brings to our work. With his eye for talent and ability to help it flourish, I can't think of a better fit for UpRising. We wish him all the best in the next phase of his career and look forward to following his success.”

Marc said, “Many of our clients are grappling with problems of widening access to better reflect UK society. Described by The Guardian as ‘a finishing school for working-class heroes’, UpRising is part of the solution and I’m thrilled to be joining the team. I take brilliant friendships – colleagues and clients – and deep learning with me from my time with More, and a profound respect for the authenticity, experience and passion of each of my colleagues.
