Burford unveils senior management changes

By BFN News | 09:09 AM | Monday 03 November, 2014

Burford Capital has announced a number of senior management appointments, designed to position the business for the continuing growth that the company expects. Jeremy Garber has joined Burford as its chief operating officer and will assume responsibility for the internal administration and operation of the business, enabling Burford's leadership team to focus on investment and growth opportunities. Garber has spent his career in the financial services industry, most recently as the COO at both Trilogy Capital Management LLC and Longacre Fund Management LLC. Garber will join the Boards of Burford Capital Holdings (UK) Limited (BCHUKL), a wholly owned subsidiary of Burford, and Burford Capital (UK) Limited (BCUKL), itself 100% owned by BCHUKL. Burford says branding and product education are increasingly important factors in the continuing development of its leadership position in the global litigation finance market and has appointed Liz Bigham as its first global chief marketing officer. Bigham was previously executive vice-president and director of brand marketing at Jack Morton Worldwide, a unit of Interpublic Group. Nick Rowles-Davies, an experienced English solicitor and author of a leading UK treatise on litigation finance, joined Burford six months ago from a UK competitor and has now been appointed managing director and head of Burford's UK business, responsible to and a member of the board of BCUKL. Chief financial officer Miriam Connole has left Burford to pursue other opportunities. Her current deputies, Jamie Knowles, Burford's UK-based group financial controller, and Christina Yue, Burford's US-based vice-president finance, have been given expanded role accountabilities and, together with the forthcoming hiring of a tax manager, will run Burford's finance function and report to Garber, who will assume responsibility for the overall function subject to the supervision of the relevant entity boards of directors.
