Twin is delighted to announce that the board of trustees has appointed Richard Anstead as our new Managing Director.

For the last 11 years Richard has worked for the Fairtrade Foundation in the UK and brings with him a wealth of experience across both the commercial and international development sectors and from a wide range of commodities including coffee, cocoa, sugar and tea.

He will be responsible for both the charity Twin and for the limited company Twin Trading and will take up the role on 13th April 2016.

Michael Ward, the Chair of TWIN’s Trustee Council said “We are very pleased to have been able to secure someone with Richard’s experience in Fairtrade and international development.”

Richard said “I have long been an admirer of Twin and Twin Trading and greatly respect the leading role the organisation has played in the Fair Trade sector. I am really excited to be joining the organisation and look forward to working closely with the team in London and with Twin’s partners across the developing world”.
