New chairman announcement

Risk Advisory is pleased to announce the appointment of Tim Eyles as its new chairman.

Risk Advisory is pleased to announce the appointment of Tim Eyles as its new chairman. Tim is the former managing partner of international law firm Taylor Wessing. He assumes formal responsibility from today replacing Leslie Ferrar, who steps down having served a successful six-year term.

Tim spent 23 years at Taylor Wessing, latterly as chair of the international board and managing partner, a role he held for nearly ten years. Under Tim’s leadership, Taylor Wessing’s global turnover increased by 60% and its profitability by 90%, with an extensive geographic expansion via mergers involving 20 additional offices in Europe, the US, Asia and the Middle East and a transformation in its brand.

He also holds a number of other board level positions including chair of The Royal Society of Arts, Jerwood Charitable Foundation and the Theatres Trust.

In his new role as chairman of Risk Advisory, Tim will be responsible for guiding the global expansion of the firm, while continuing to grow the business and provide the world’s leading corporations and governments with the highest quality intelligence, investigations and security services.

Commenting on the appointment Group CEO David Claridge said: “Tim is a proven leader of people businesses. He has deep expertise in motivating individuals and teams, and in building strong client relationships. His track record in transformation and growth mirrors our own aspirations and assured us that he is the ideal person to guide our efforts to reach new markets. I am excited to be working with him. On behalf of everyone at Risk Advisory I’d also like to thank Leslie Ferrar for her incredible support over the last six years.”

Tim Eyles, Chair of The Risk Advisory Group, said: “I am thrilled to be joining The Risk Advisory Group. I am hugely impressed with the company’s ability to be the trusted partner of some of the world’s best-known businesses, from private institutions to governments and public bodies. The trust and integrity at the core of the firm’s ethos are critical in protecting the reputations of those clients. I am looking forward to beginning work with the Board of Directors to lead the company into what I anticipate will be an exciting phase of ambitious international growth and development.”
