StepChange Debt Charity founder and president awarded CBE

31 December, 2012

Malcolm Hurlston, the founder and president of StepChange Debt Charity, has been awarded a CBE in the New Year Honours List. Mr Hurlston was recognised for two decades of work leading the charity, which is now the major source of free debt counselling and advice in the UK.

As well as founding and chairing StepChange Debt Charity from its inception in 1993 as the Foundation for Credit Counselling until 2010, he chairs Registry Trust, the Employee Share Ownership Centre and the Financial Inclusion Centre.

He is also a visiting professor at Westminster Business School and a former chair of money education charity Credit Action.

Commenting on his award, Mr Hurlston said:

“You don't get to help a couple of million people without a lot of support, for which I am deeply grateful.

“Let's see how else we can put lives right with an efficient and non-judgmental formula.”
