Crowe snags Argo's Hindson

Industry veteran Alex Hindson has been snapped up by Crowe.

The former chief risk and sustainability officer of Argo Group has more than 30 years’ experience in risk management and governance, having previously worked at AstraZeneca, Aon and Amlin. He has also acted as a non-executive director for non-profit organisations.

As head of sustainability at Crowe, Hindson bolsters the firm’s existing risk consulting team to help clients with their net zero transitions, sustainability strategy development and implementation, risk and governance enhancement, data and scenario modelling, and reporting and disclosure requirements. He will also drive Crowe’s own sustainability programme.

Throughout his career, Hindson has received a number of CIR Awards, including the ESG Award in the 2021 Risk Management Awards.

Commenting on the appointment, Justin Elks, head of risk consulting, said: “I look forward to working with Alex to provide support and advice to our clients as they tackle the practical challenges of climate and ESG considerations, helping them to build sustainable businesses that can respond to, and benefit from, change and uncertainty.”

Hindson added: “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.”
