Ross will report to the CII director of policy and public affairs David Thomson when he takes up the post on June 29.

Thomson says: “I am delighted to welcome David Ross to the CII at a time when it is growing in its influence and reach. David brings valuable experience from the market place.

Ross adds: “I am arriving at an exciting time for the CII and I am looking forward to the new challenge and the host of issues facing the CII and the profession as a whole through this currently turbulent period.”
