Listen now
Welcome to Season 3 of our podcast. I could not have hoped for a more inspiring, purpose-led GUEST + ORGANISATION to be speaking with. Anthony Chesler, is the CEO of Thread Together Anthony is a respected leader and trusted advisor and joined Thread Together in the role of CEO in 2019 after a 20 year career in global management consulting where he held several leadership roles. Anthony leads the team at Thread Together and heads up the overall strategic, operational and financial responsibility. As CEO, Anthony has been tasked to scale up the organisation to become the highest ethical response to fashion excess. The goal is to keep brand-new excess clothing in circulation at its highest value by clothing communities in need, without judgment. His genuine interest and care for others makes it easy for people to trust him no matter what challenges lie ahead and it is for this reason that Anthony hopes to continue to improve the quality of lives of others through general acts of doing good and continued work in the 'for purpose' sector. Thread together has 1100 Brand Partners, and 700 Charity Partners, has saved up to 4 million items from landfill each year, and has clothed over 600,000 people in need to date. I'm proud to share that Fashion Equipped will be offering our support to Thread Together through introductions to brands, volunteering opportunities, and championing Anthony and his team by helping build awareness across as many touchpoints as we can. I was inspired in so many ways during this dynamic chat with Anthony, and I certainly felt that I was in the presence of a purpose led leader and I'm sure you will be too.
