Bruce Carnegie-Brown has been appointed the new president of the Chartered Management Institute. Carnegie-Brown will formally take over from outgoing president Mike Clasper at the professional body’s AGM today [21 Sept].

Currently the chairman of both Lloyd’s of London and Group, Carnegie-Brown brings to the role a wealth of experience from a 30-year career in the City. His other appointments include vice chairman of Banco Santander SA. Carnegie-Brown has been a Companion of CMI since 2014.

CMI is the only chartered body for management and leadership professionals with more than 157,000 in membership. The body now partners with more than 90 universities and 500 education providers to help nearly 40,000 aspiring or established managers gain CMI-backed professional qualifications in the last year alone. CMI also offers Chartered Manager status, the highest accreditation in management.

In the past two years, CMI has worked with a group of 30 employers to develop the new breed of management apprenticeships, including the Trailblazer flagship Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship. A new Master’s level degree apprenticeship for senior leaders is due to launch in October.

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.
