Legal Ombudsman announces new chief executive

The Legal Ombudsman (LeO) has announced that its new Chief Executive will be Director of Corporate Services, Rob Powell.

Mr Powell will replace Nick Hawkins, who leaves the organisation in September after nearly two years at the helm. He has said that his priority will be to further modernise the LeO and to “get the best out of our fantastic people and embed our customer service principles.” Rob Powell, who is a qualified accountant, joined the LeO in October last year, moving from Ofwat where he was the Delivery Director and Director of Finance.

In other LeO management news, an advertisement for the position of Chief Legal Ombudsman is due to be issued next week as Kathryn Stone is moving on at the end of the year to become the new Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards.
