LEBC appoints two additional directors

National IFA, pensions and employee benefits consultancy LEBC Group has appointed Jon Newman and Dermid Strain to the boards of LEBC Group Ltd and LEBC Holdings Ltd.

Both appointments are with immediate effect and have been approved by the Financial Conduct Authority.
 
Jack McVitie, LEBC’s chief executive, says: “Jon and Dermid will bring additional skills to the table and prove very valuable to our business going forward. They will strengthen our two boards further as the business continues on its growth path. Following recent announcement of nearly a 40 per cent increase in operating profits and the appointment of Jeremy MacLeod as chief operating officer, these additional appointments mean LEBC is extremely well positioned to develop the business and plan for the next 10 years of growth.”
 
Newman is group director of finance at BP Marsh. He was the BP Marsh appointed board director for Hyperion Insurance Group Limited and oversaw the successful sale of the majority of the group’s holding to General Atlantic in 2013. He provides senior financial advice to all companies within the BP Marsh Group’s portfolio.
 
Strain is finance director, global marketing at Bacardi and brings international business experience and a background steeped in brand building and maintenance with some leading fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) global brands including Procter and Gamble, Gillette Group and Coca Cola.
