The CEO of environmental charity, Hubbard, Trewin Restorick, has announced he is stepping down from the position later this year after eight years.
Under Restorick’s management, the charity has worked with brands including Tesco, Waitrose, Lidl and Asda, alongside, McDonald’s, Starbucks and Costa Coffee. The company has also had partnerships with Danone and L’Oréal.
Hubbub campaigns under Restorick’s leadership have also included community fridges, which were first launched in 2014, before establishing the world’s first Community Fridge Network.

Currently, there are 250 community fridges members nationwide with plans to double this in partnership with symbol group retailer, the Co-op.
“I am intensely proud of what Hubbub has achieve,” Restorick said.
“Deciding to move on from such an incredible organisation at a time when it is growing and delivering even greater impact has been difficult. But it is never healthy having a Founder hang around for too long.
“As organisations develop different skills are needed to take things to scale. A fresh set of eyes can find new opportunities and enhance different ways of working.”
“I do not intend to invest in slippers and rocking chair,” Restorick added, announcing plans to create a “new enterprise”.
“This will further add to the impact of Hubbub, opening new opportunities for the charity to develop whilst also pushing boundaries to hasten the changes that we must see to address the environmental and social challenges of the climate crisis.”
As a result of the departure, the charity is now seeking a new CEO.
