New Appointments, Big Decisions and Reforms for the School for CEOs Faculty

CEO and Chairman appointments, reform hurdling and charitable donations were all on the agenda for the School for CEOs Faculty last week:

    • Congratulations to Justin Stead, former CEO at Aurum Holdings (owner of jewellery chains Mappin & Webb, Watches of Switzerland and Goldsmiths) who has been appointed to chair furniture retailer Sofa.com.  We wish him every success in his new role.
    • Meanwhile, as Morrisons announce an earlier-than-anticipated departure for Dalton Phillips, Andy Higginson narrows his search for the supermarket giant's next CEO.  He has also taken an active role in the daily running of the business.
    • David Nish, CEO at Standard Life, is expected to post solid full-year profits despite George Osborne's radical pension reforms which come into effect in April this year.
    • Finally, Adrian Grace, CEO at Aegon UK, announces the company's donation of £66,666 to local charities.  The money was raised through employees of Aegon UK, the final sum of which was doubled by the company.
