Trish Houston has been appointed as chief operating officer (COO) at Law Debenture and will also join its board as an executive director.
The appointment was effective as of yesterday (2 September) following Houston's departure from JDX Consulting, where she was global head of HR from January 2018 until July this year.
She was previously COO of Logical Glue, a machine-learning predictive statistical analysis system platform, and co-founded technology firm Scaled Networks. Between 2010 and 2015, she worked in various roles, including partner, at investment management firm Ruffer, after nine years at PwC where she was most latterly a senior manager.
Her appointment comes amid a small reshuffle of the senior management team, with Hester Scotton taking over the role of chief financial officer on 11 September following the departure of Katie Thorpe, while Kelly Stobbs was recently promoted to general counsel.
Chief executive Denis Jackson commented: "[Houston's] insight and experience will be of great value. Trish's appointment and the promotions of Hester and Kelly mark an important step forward for the company and the executive team as we continue to invest to support our ambitious growth plans. The strengthened team is well positioned to build on the strong growth seen in the last few years."
He added that the company remains in the "early stages of a reinvigorated growth cycle", with significant opportunities for growth in revenue and earnings.
The UK Sustainable Investment and Finance Association (UKSIF) has appointed James Alexander as its chief executive officer (CEO).
Formerly UK-centric Smart will launch in three new territories next year as part of an expansion following the close of its most recent funding round.
