A senior figure in business innovation has dismissed reports that he is to become Foreign Secretary David Miliband's chief of staff in a future leadership challenge.
Jonathan Kestenbaum, chief executive of the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts, said the story in PR Week was "complete fabrication".
