Don Baxter

Chief Financial Officer

Don joined Tough Mudder as Chief Operating Office in 2012 and later transitioned into his current role as Chief Financial Officer. Showing early entrepreneurial promise, Don ran a boating business, a jazz night and brewed beer in a cupboard at high school before getting struck by wanderlust and travelling through Africa, Australia, Europe and Latin America. Prior to Tough Mudder, he used to work with companies in financial difficulty, tackling everything from law firms to luxury spas, and ski resorts to toys shops, with the odd FBI fraud investigation along the way. On the side, Don co-founded a charity working with schools in East Africa, and is tremendously proud that there’s school library somewhere north of the Maasai Mara with his picture hanging on the wall. When not in the office, he’s usually looking for the next crazy challenge (running in the Sahara has been the best so far) or training his two kids, Charlie and Poppy to be the next British Wimbledon champions.
