It has been a tough time for businesses across the world so we are feeling extremely lucky to be expanding our team with two new appointments to our senior leadership team.
Geraint Hughes will be joining us as Chairman and Non-Executive Director while Alex Marples becomes Chief Operating Officer.
So who are they and why are we so excited?
Geraint has joined us following a 25-year career at Magic Circle law firm Clifford Chance, where he led the Asia Pacific and South East Asia divisions respectively over the last 10 years.
Equally, Alex has spent the last year spearheading the Government’s Covid-19 Test and Trace operations. He began his career in financial services, spending over 17 years at Domestic & General and rising to Operations Director before shifting into the public sector.
Over the last few years, Crowdfunder has grown and expanded in so many ways and with growth comes more opportunities. These two appointments will allow us to focus on the development of the business with our ever increasing portfolio of partners and projects.
Our mission is to tackle society’s challengers and connect people to the causes that really matter to them. With major events like G7 and COP26 taking place this year, there’s no better time to expand our team and start making waves in new areas.
Needless to say we are thrilled to have Geraint and Alex joining us. As highly respected leaders in their fields, we are already feeling the benefit of their decades of experience. Both have shown themselves to be outstanding characters who share our vision for Crowdfunder and our desire to grow the £200million we have already raised for good causes.
On his new position, Geraint told us, “I’m excited to be appointed as the Chair of Crowdfunder, working with the board and team to provide a platform that empowers groups of like-minded people in the UK and beyond to make a meaningful contribution to their communities.”
Alex said, “This was a great opportunity to step into this sector – what excites me first and foremost is the sheer number of incredible projects making a meaningful difference to people and communities across the country.”
A massive welcome to both Geraint and Alex! We are truly excited to see what the future holds for Crowdfunder and our development.
