We are pleased to announce a number of changes to BPL Global’s senior management team as part of the latest steps in our succession plans and long-term commitment to remain an independent, employee-owned broker.
Our two Managing Directors, James Esdaile and Sian Aspinall, move into new roles. James becomes Chairman, assuming the role from Charles Berry. Sian becomes Group CEO, and both she and James will remain board members of the group’s operating companies in the UK, France, Singapore and New York. Charles Berry will remain actively involved with the business and a member of our Group Board as Founding Director.
Separately we can announce two promotions within our senior management team: Charlie Radcliffe and James Reynolds will assume the role of Deputy CEO. Charlie joined BPL Global in 2008, becoming a Director in 2014, while James joined the company in 2014 and was made a Director in 2017. During their careers to date, Charlie and James have gained a wealth of experience handling some of BPL Global’s most important client relationships while both managing large teams of brokers. In their new roles, they will assume additional responsibilities for strategic and operational matters across the group, working closely with James Esdaile and Sian Aspinall to maintain high service level standards for our clients and helping steer the company’s future course in the specialist CPRI class.
BPL Global Founding Director, Charles Berry, says: “James and Sian have played a vital role in our development over the last seven years, overseeing substantial business growth while navigating the company through many challenging issues including extensive legal and regulatory reform, Brexit, a global pandemic and the increasing digitalisation of our market. They will continue to lead the company. Looking ahead, though, I am delighted that James Reynolds and Charlie Radcliffe will be stepping up to the role of Deputy CEO to support BPL Global’s response to these and other new challenges.”
