Andrew Redfern has been the Chief Executive of Framework since 2002.
He left Oxford University with a 2.1 in Politics, Philosophy and Economics but he eschewed a career into politics and entered the third sector.
Andrew spent five years working for one of Europe's largest homeless men's hostels at Arlington House in Camden, and then he moved north to be director of the Nottingham Help the Homeless Association.
Andrew helped engineer a merger between the Nottingham Help the Homeless Association and Macedon and the two charities became Framework in 2001. He took up the chief executive's job the following year.
