Hindson will be based in London, and will work with Crowe’s existing risk consulting team, helping clients across all sectors with their net zero transition, sustainability strategy development and implementation, risk and governance enhancement, data and scenario modelling plus reporting and disclosure requirements. He will also drive Crowe’s own sustainability programme.

Hindson commented, “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.”

The industry veteran joins Crowe from Argo Group, where he was Chief Risk and Sustainability Officer, a role in which Hindson pioneered industry-leading approaches to create sustainability strategies. With over 30 years of experience, he has also previously worked at AstraZeneca, Aon and Amlin, in a variety of risk management, consulting and governance roles.

Nigel Bostock, Chief Executive at Crowe, added, “Alex’s appointment is a great addition to our award-winning team. This not only ensures clients continue to receive top-tier service in pursuit of their sustainability goals, but also supports our own firm’s sustainability objectives to help make a difference in the world, as well as our commitment to attracting and retaining the best talent. I look forward to seeing the team continue to grow as we move into the new year.”
