Charles Middleton

Managing Director

Triodos Bank

Charles joined Triodos Bank in 2003 as Managing Director of the UK business after 21 years of commercial banking experience, which included time spent in India, Africa and the Caribbean.

The last 10 years have been a time of significant growth for Triodos in the UK with total lending now exceeding £420m and the development of an Investment Management Business which raised capital finance of £25m in 2011 for a number of social and environmental organisations.

The credit crisis has been an opportunity for Triodos to demonstrate that a different way of banking based on transparency and ethical values can work at a time when conventional banking models are being severely tested.

Charles is a former Chairman of the Haller Foundation who work with rural communities in Kenya and has recently become a Trustee of ChildHope.
