Ashcourt Rowan duo depart in senior management shake-up

Ashcourt Rowan Group has appointed Alfio Tagliabue as chief financial officer and Richard Sinclair as chief operating officer as part of a managment shake-up.

The pair join early next year and replace current CFO Neil Hale and COO Jeremy Rance, who have stepped down.

Tagliabue has been a board level consultant advising UK financial institutions on a range of topics including strategy, operational and financial planning, organisational issues and corporate development.

Sinclair joins the business from Ofcom where he held the position of olympic and paralympics delivery director. He was also a member of both Ofcom’s Operations Board and Leadership Steering Group.

Tagliabue joins on January 9, 2012, while Sinclair joins on February 1.

The outgoing pair both purchase shares in Ashcourt Rowan earlier this month. Rance bought 15,000 shares in the company and Hale bought 12,000 shares as part of the share buying scheme the firm announced in November.
