Traidcraft’s CEO Paul Chandler is to step down in March next year.

Chandler, who has been CEO for 11 years, is bowing out to take on non-exec roles and to develop his work with Durham Cathedral, where he is chair of the council.

Business director Mags Vaughan will act as CEO until a new CEO is appointed. “Paul’s unswerving commitment to promoting social and trade justice has been key to delivering Traidcraft’s mission,” said Traidcraft chair Ram Gidoomal.
