Northern Recruitment Group (NRG) has announced the appointment of a new chief executive to lead the Newcastle-based business.
Chris Rigg, currently Corporate Director at Barclays in the North East, will join the recruitment business in October, taking over from current chief executive and founder Lorna Moran who will move into the role of chairman.
The announcement came as the group reported its latest annual results and predicted an upturn in demand as the economic recovery continues.
Lorna, who has led NRG for more than 30 years, predicted the company was well placed to benefit from the upturn in the economy with its new leadership team in place.
She said: “Chris brings a wealth of business experience to the role and the Board is confident that he and Managing Director Therese Liddle will drive NRG forward in the coming years.”
In his current role at Barclays, Chris is responsible for working with many of the bank’s leading corporate clients. Prior to joining Barclays, Chris worked for Eaga plc where he fulfilled a number of roles including Group Corporate Finance Director and Managing Director of Eaga Clean Energy Limited.
