UK - Higham Group has appointed Peter Rawlins (pictured) as chairman.
Based in London, he will work with chief executive Alan Higham in formulating and driving the specialist outsourcing services company’s growth strategy.
Rawlins was chief executive of the London Stock Exchange between 1989 and 1993, where he was responsible for substantial change in governance, organisation, operations and finances.
Among other innovations, he re-engineered and outsourced the management and delivery of the LSE’s entire IT and technical services – the largest outsourcing contract of its kind at the time.
Since 1994, he has practised as Rawlins Strategy Consulting, advising organisations within the financial services sector on their business and organisational development and change management strategies. Rawlins trained as a chartered accountant with Arthur Anderson in London, becoming a partner in 1983.
Following a two-year secondment to Lloyd’s of London, he spent five years as managing director of Sturge Holdings, the largest publicly quoted underwriting and stockbroking group at Lloyd’s.
