The BGL Group have appointed a new member to the Executive Team, with Catherine Lynch confirmed as the new HR Director
Catherine joins the Group from Barclaycard, where she spent two years as the Head of HR for UK and Europe. Before that, Catherine spent seven years as Santander’s HR Director, and has also worked with Sainsbury’s and Tesco. Her experience spans the HR spectrum, from influencing and leading organisational change, coaching and talent development through to HR services.
Catherine Lynch, HR Director, said:
I was attracted to the BGL Group because it has an inspiring story and is a very dynamic business. From a start-up with a handful of employees just twenty years ago, the Group has grown to a portfolio of nine successful businesses with plans for significant but sustainable growth. The Group recognises that its success is down to the hard work and commitment of its people, and I can’t wait to get involved in helping shape its future
Catherine will report to Group Chief Operating Officer, Matthew Donaldson, who said
Our continuing growth is dependent on our strategic objective to attract and retain exceptional people. Catherine’s expertise and innovative approach across all areas of HR will be invaluable in helping the Group achieve its ambitious plans for further growth and ongoing success
