Leading fundraising platform Localgiving.com has appointed Stephen Mallinson as new Chief Executive. At a key time of development for the organisation, Stephen will build on Localgiving.com’s strategy of enabling local charities to become sustainable by equipping them with the tools to fundraise online.

Stephen has over 35 years experience in the technology sector with 20 years at senior management level, having formerly been CEO at ip.access Ltd., a Cambridge-based cellular technology company. He brings an essential mix of technical expertise and entrepreneurial leadership to take Localgiving.com into the next stage of growth.

Chairman and Founder of Localgiving.com, Marcelle Speller, commented: “Stephen will be a great force for good and we’re thrilled to have him on board. Stephen’s role will be to take on the day-to-day running of the organisation and drive forward our strategy of helping small charities to become sustainable. Stephen joining us means I will be able to take a more long-term, strategic approach to Localgiving.com’s work, forging partnerships across the country to expand the service we provide to small rural charities.”

Stephen Mallinson, new Chief Executive at Localgiving.com, said: “Localgiving.com has great vision and I’m excited to be part of this vibrant and forward-thinking organisation. I’m keen to be putting my experience in the technology industry to good use in the third sector.

“Marcelle’s determination and leadership have resulted in an organisation and platform that has already helped to raise over £6m for the 4,000+ local charities registered on the site so far. My main objective will be to drive penetration and growth among the estimated 500,000 local charities in the UK.”
