Crowe has strengthened its risk consulting team with Alex Hindson's appointment as its new Head of Sustainability. The new Partner is based in London and has over three decades of experience.
Head of Risk Consulting Justin Elks said, "I'm looking forward to working with Alex to help and advise our clients as they deal with the practical challenges of climate and ESG considerations. This will help them build sustainable businesses that can adapt to change and uncertainty and even benefit from it."
Crowe has more than 80 partners and 900 professionals working for it in the UK. Together, they bring in more than £100 million in revenue. It is an independent member of Crowe Global, a network of professional services that helps clients worldwide with audit, tax, advisory, and risk services.
Hindson will be based in London and work alongside Crowe's existing risk consulting team to assist clients across all industries with their net-zero transition, sustainability strategy development and implementation, risk and governance enhancement, data and scenario modelling, and reporting and disclosure requirements. He will also spearhead Crowe's own sustainability initiative.
Hindson commented, “The strength of the consulting team at Crowe was a big attraction for me, and I am eager to start working with them in what will be an important year for sustainability issues. Helping clients on their sustainability journeys really is more crucial than ever, at a time where the spotlight is so firmly on ESG and being able to credibly substantiate your organisation’s credentials.”
Hindson joins Crowe from Argo Group, where he was Chief Risk and Sustainability Officer and pioneered industry-leading approaches to developing sustainability plans. He has been in the business world for more than 30 years and has worked at AstraZeneca, Aon, and Amlin in risk management, consulting, and governance roles.
Nigel Bostock, Chief Executive at Crowe, added, “Alex’s appointment is a great addition to our award-winning team. This ensures that clients continue to get top-notch service as they work toward their sustainability goals. It also helps our firm reach its own sustainability goals, make a difference in the world, and keep the best employees. I look forward to seeing the team continue to grow as we move into the new year.”
