Financial crime, risk and compliance specialist Plenitude has expanded its leadership team by appointing Mark Humphries as its non-executive chairman, a role in which he will provide invaluable strategic insights to the board to allow the company to strengthen its capabilities while also guiding the firm in executing its business strategy.
Humphries, one of the financial services sector’s most experienced business leaders, is a specialist in fast-paced growth within private equity (PE)-backed firms and an expert in strategy execution, accelerated transformation, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and in leveraging technology and data to drive client solutions.
His career includes handling M&A for FTSE 100 groups, building a highly successful corporate finance advisory firm and serving as CEO of an award-winning business-to-business professional services firm advising the financial services and energy sectors. He now holds several PE-backed non-executive chair roles.
“Humphries has an impressive track record working with other high growth PE-backed businesses and the timing could not be better given that we have just completed our busiest year to date and have our sights set on more growth this year,” says Alan Paterson, the company’s managing director. “We’re now even more determined to achieve our ambition to be the leading consultancy in financial crime compliance advisory, transformation and innovative regtech subscription products.”
