About Claudia

Impact driven entrepreneurship is in Claudia's DNA, and with Hitch she is doing exactly that.

Prior to Hitch, Claudia's career highlights included working on the COVID-19 border programme, supporting NZ's second largest business transformation, and managing a subsidiary of a global education company aiming to completely disrupt the way people access education.

Claudia also recently launched a project raising funds for the people in Ukraine. Thrift for Good is an online thrift store, where people can donate clothing. Thrift for Good sells these and 100% of the profits go towards the Red Cross's efforts in Ukraine.

About Todd

Todd is passionate about people, business, and building a sustainable future through innovation.

Todd has been a problem solver since he can remember - always frustrated by the status quo and searching for ways to think different. He began his professional career with PwC Consulting, where he worked with organisations across the private and public sector to design teams and build effective people strategies.

His journey into entrepreneurship was a natural progression - and a focus on sustainability was always going to be a priority. Motivated and frustrated by inaction, Todd is inspired to do his bit and make an impact for generations to come.
