Trust for Developing Communities Appoints Athol Hallé as New Chief Executive

We are pleased to announce that TDC (The Trust for Developing Communities) has appointed Athol Hallé as its next Chief Executive and he will be taking up the post at the end of October.

Athol comes to us from his position as Chief Executive of Groundswell, a post that he has held for the past 11 years, building the charity from small beginnings into the prominent and highly respected homeless organisation that it is today. His previous employers include Cardboard Citizens, Amnesty International UK and the National Homeless Alliance – the organisation from which Groundswell originated. Athol is a fellow of the School for Social Entrepreneurs and of the Ariane de Rothschild Fellowship in Social Enterprise and Cross-Cultural Dialogue.
