Thebes’ Chairman, Ken Olisa, OBE, named ‘most influential black Briton’
The Powerlist has voted and named Thebes’ Chairman, Ken Olisa, OBE, the most influential black Briton. Chosen by the Powerlist Panel in September, Ken was ranked above other nominees for his work in tackling homelessness and poverty. The panel judged the nominees based on how influential they are in their ‘immediate sphere of expertise and how far that influence reaches beyond that’. Second on the list was Lenny Henry, followed by Sharon White, Steve McQueen and Lewis Hamilton with Mo Farah taking eight place.
