Mackenzie had a chair at Davies review for recruiting more women in the board level, while she still has a place at the “Board of Mothercare and The National Youth Orchestra”, which is situated in Great Britain. On her new appointment, Mackenzie commented:
"For over 30 years Business in the Community has been lighting the way in helping companies conduct responsible business. I feel very privileged to lead this organisation. Their work is needed now more than ever before. I see our job to help businesses serve the communities around them that have helped them be successful.”
 
The predecessor of Mackenzie at Business in the Community, Stephen Howard, will still “continue to work” by participating in projects, whereby it highlights “his passion for social purpose”, while retaining the power of the “Chair of the National School Partnership, Chair of the independent charitable trust Power to Change and Director of The Big Society Trust”.
