Chris Gallon – North East Regional Lead

Chris joined the Movement to Work team in February 2020 as the Regional Lead for the North East. He is on secondment from Sage, where he works for their Foundation as a coordinator for the UK and Irish offices supporting local charities and causes with corporate volunteering, grant giving and fundraising.

Chris is hugely passionate about supporting young people to be the best they can be and through his role at Sage has seen first-hand the benefit that talented young people can bring to both business and their communities with the right support, opportunity and direction. He sees Movement to Work’s vision and mission as being vital to developing youth employment in the North East and is hugely excited about being given the opportunity to develop and connect the eco system in the region.

Outside work, Chris lives by the coast in Whitley Bay with his fiancé and two toddlers (who keep him extremely busy). He’s a huge football fan supporting the mighty Newcastle United and loves to keep fit by boxing and taking part in extreme mud runs.
