Openwork Holdings, the parent company of network Openwork, has appointed Anne Grim and Rosanne Murison as non-executive directors.
Openwork’s leadership team is headed by chief executive Philip Howell and chair Andy Smart and it is focussing on the next phase of its strategy and development as an independent, adviser-owned business.
Murison, who will also chair the company’s remuneration committee, subject to regulatory approval, has more than 30 years’ experience advising multinational companies at board level. She is currently a non-executive director at Allianz UK, serving as chair of both the remuneration and nomination committee and the customer and conduct committee. She has also been chair of Rothschild Diamonds Ltd since 2012. Previously she worked at senior levels for SSP Group plc, Eden McCallum LLP and Quintiles Transnational Inc and began her career at Boston Consulting Group where she rose to become a partner in the consumer and retail practice.
Grim, who will also chair the risk and compliance committee, again subject to regulatory approval, has recently joined Metro Bank as a board director and brings more than 30 years’ experience in senior financial services leadership roles at Barclays, Wells Fargo, American Express, Mastercard and most recently as chief customer officer at Fidelity International. Her expertise is in customer experience, strategic planning and execution, technology innovation and business transformation.
Smart said: “The appointments of Anne and Rosanne strengthen Openwork’s leadership team at a strategically important time as we continue the development and growth of the business over the coming months and years. I look forward to welcoming both to the board and working closely with them to continue the Openwork success story.”
