Alastair Holberton

Founder & CEO

Alastair founded Interchange in 1990 after extensive experience in foreign exchange and natural resources development.
He is credited with ending the De Beers offshore diamond mining monopoly in Namibia and with fundamentally changing industry work practices to those based on merit and respect.

He has guided Interchange’s development through organic growth and acquisition of significant businesses from American Express, Travelex, Western Union, all from retained earnings through a policy of eschewing debt.
He continues his interest in Africa through funding a maternal health programme in Sierra Leone.

Alastair has a B. Economics from The Australian National University who has placed him in its Business School’s Hall of Fame, and awarded him an Honorary Doctorate.

He is married with 4 children.

Andrew Burton
Group CFO

Having chosen finance as a career over football many years ago, Andrew, a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, went on to hold senior finance roles with several international blue-chip companies.

He joined Interchange in June 2008 and takes responsibility for all financial matters across the Group, including a proactive role in all commercial developments.

He still dreams of keeping one final clean sheet for Leeds United, where he played in his youth, rather than completing another fascinating spreadsheet! However, these days he is more likely found climbing a mountain or paddleboarding down a river.
