Higgins appointed Markerstudy Group chairman

Markerstudy Group has appointed Benny Higgins as group chairman, as the company focuses on ESG following a packed first quarter in which it welcomed new partners Pollen Street Capital and Qatar Insurance Company, and announced the acquisition of Brightside.

Kevin Spencer, group CEO, said: “We are steering Markerstudy Group on an exhilarating growth trajectory and due to our size, diversity, and speed of acceleration, it’s the optimum time to invite a chairman on board to complement the skills of my existing board of directors. Benny has vast financial sector experience, coupled with a social and philanthropic conscience, and it’s these combined attributes which attracted us to him, and which align so well with our plans for the future.”

Benny Higgins, said: “I am thrilled to be joining Markerstudy Group at such a pivotal moment, and appreciate the opportunity to provide counsel. Post-pandemic, the new normal which Markerstudy is wholeheartedly embracing includes a deeper understanding of an organisation’s impact on the environment, and its social and governance principles. ESG is a top priority for Markerstudy, and I am passionate about supporting change for improvement across my non-executive portfolio.”

Markerstudy received regulatory approval for the Brightside Group acquisition on 22nd March, with the deal completing on 12th April.
