Niki joined ACEx from Fairtrade Australia and New Zealand, where they worked in a communications and digital role, helping the non-profit organisation to further its aims of transforming trade and transforming the lives of small-scale farmers and workers in developing countries.

The highlight of Niki's time at Fairtrade was visiting the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea in June 2019 to meet the fascinating members of Highlands Organic Agricultural Cooperative and other coffee-producing organisations. 

Prior to joining Fairtrade, Niki worked as a writer, editor and journalist in Australia and the UK, travelling to South Korea, France and Russia to report on major sporting events, including the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Niki is strongly motivated to further the causes of sustainability and equality.
