Warren Partners has placed Criticaleye Member David Harrel, as Non-executive Chairman of Fairpoint Group plc.
“David, who is currently Senior Independent Director of Rathbone Brothers and Chairman of Savile Group was also a founding partner of SJ Berwin LLP in 1982. David joins Fairpoint Group, the leading provider of advice and solutions to financially stressed consumers as Chairman, effective immediately” commented Criticaleye.
Andrew Tallents, Director at Warren Partners and Criticaleye Advisory Partner, commented: “David Harrel was one of the first Criticaleye Members we met when we joined as Advisory Partners in May this year. We met with him to understand his future NED portfolio aspirations and we were delighted to be able to contact him two months later about the opportunity at Fairpoint. David was up against a strong shortlist of candidates from a broad range of industry sectors but his depth of professional services experience combined with his people focused style of chairmanship were differentiating factors that impressed the Fairpoint Board. David begins his new role today and we wish him every success for the future”
