APPOINTMENT OF NEW UK & IRELAND MANAGING DIRECTOR
Hays, the worlds leading recruiting experts in qualified, professional and skilled people, is pleased to announce the appointment of Royston Hoggarth to its Management Board and on 1 October he will succeed Tim Cook as UK & Ireland Managing Director. Tim Cook will be appointed Head of Business Innovation, a newly created position, and will remain on the Groups Management Board.
Alistair Cox, Chief Executive of Hays, commented:
I am pleased to welcome Royston to Hays. Royston has many years of strategic and operational experience across a number of industries, having most recently been Chief Executive for BT PLCs Global Services UK and prior to this Chief Executive for Logica PLCs International operations and Chief Executive of Cable & Wireless PLCs UK, US and European businesses. In the UK & Ireland, Hays remains focused on building its market share and further driving efficiencies, and we look forward to seeing Royston build on the strong foundations that Tim has put in place and lead the business into the next cycle of growth.
Tim has done an excellent job in leading our UK & Ireland business through the recession and it is a credit to his leadership that we have both strengthened our market position and importantly remained profitable throughout this period. In his new role he will be responsible for ensuring that as the Group returns to growth it is able to maximise fully the opportunities our new business and IT systems offer us.
