LWG Chair, Ian Scher comments, “This is an exceptional role for someone with strong leadership, and a proven track record of implementing sustainable strategies. The appointment reflects the commitment of LWG to building a robust organisation that will enable its vision of a world where leather is sourced, produced, and used sustainably, protecting people and the planet.”
