Rowan Dartington today announced that it has marked the start of 2017 with the appointment of Marcus Adams as its chief risk officer and board member based in Bristol.

Marcus Adams, a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants, joined Rowan Dartington fromFriends Provident International where he was international risk director. Prior to this role, he was head of group internal audit for four years and set up the group risk function at Prudential PLC, following the financial crisis in 2008. In a career spanning more than 30 years, Marcus built his experience leading large teams within a number of major blue chip organisations including Price Waterhouse, Guardian Royal Exchange and BT, and working across major markets, including Asia, North America, Europe and Southern Africa.

“Fast growth also implies significant changes and Marcus’ experience, with his proven capability in developing and continuously improving risk management and internal audit functions, will be key to our long term success,” commented executive chairman Graham Coxell. “His international work will also prove most valuable at a time when the firm is expanding its offshore offering with Rowan Dartington International,” he added.

Marcus is a keen countryman, living in the South Downs National park where he keeps his horses and enjoys riding them out in the Sussex countryside.
