Name: Matteo Ward
Role: Project manager
Bio: After university in Milan (Bocconi University) and Seoul (Yonsei University), a fresh graduate in International Economics, I began my career in fashion in 2009 working for Abercrombie and Fitch. Following a short training period in London and Italy where I opened the first flagship store in Milan, I was then relocated to Germany where I eventually became Sr. Manager and Co-Chair of A&F’s global Diversity and Inclusion Council in 2013. That was the year in which a series of external and internal events gradually started to open my eyes to the true environmental and social cost of the fashion industry. So many questions – the answers which followed determined the decision to quit my job in 2015 , leave my comfort zone, and invest everything I had in trying to catalyze #LivableChange. The result? The rise of WRÅD.
