Carnegie-Brown said:

I’m passionate about the talent of tomorrow and CMI has a great heritage of developing leaders and managers. Investing in young people who have the ideas and motivation to drive businesses forward is essential to helping us grow a globally competitive UK plc. I look forward to working with CMI as it builds on its successes, particularly in its professional apprenticeships that will transform how we train our next generation of managers.

Ann Francke, CMI’s chief executive, said:

Bruce brings a wealth of experience across the private and not-for-profit sectors both in the UK and globally. I’m looking forward to working with him to continue CMI’s success as we aim to eliminate the ‘accidental manager’ and raise leadership standards.

In his successful career, Carnegie-Brown roles have included managing partner of 3i Group plc’s Quoted Private Equity business, CEO of Marsh McLennan’s UK and European businesses and a managing director of JP Morgan. He is also a Trustee of Historic Royal Palaces, a Deputy Lieutenant of Greater London, a Past President of the Institute of Bankers and a member of the Chartered Insurance Institute.
