“I want to help children thrive because I believe we are all responsible for each other.”

It gives him an opportunity to share his over 25 years international marketing, business and leadership experience with an organisation that he is passionate about, an organisation he says is a "truly noble cause".

Previously he was Managing Director of Mondelez (Cadbury) New Zealand and has worked all around the globe in various roles in Australia, Sri Lanka, Central America, Venezuela, Uruguay, Caribbean and Bolivia.
Alastair has a degree in Marketing and in Arts (Sociology) and his career path has been through fast moving consumer goods marketing before taking on general management roles for the last 10+ years.
He is married and his children were all born in Venezuela. Alastair's hobbies are sailing, travel, working on classic cars, and making clothes.
