Apex adds to executive committee

Apex Group, a global financial services provider, has appointed Andrew Macklin as General Counsel and member of its Executive Committee.

Apex has expanded exponentially over the past eighteen months diversifying its product set following a number of bolt-on acquisitions around the world. The appointment of Andrew supports the strategy to broaden Apex’s capabilities beyond asset management services, into the institutional provider space.
Most recently Head of Legal at Monzo Bank, Andrew has strong experience advising high growth companies. Prior to moving in-house, Andrew held senior roles at top-tier international law firms Latham & Watkins and White & Case and started his career at Slaughter and May. He has extensive expertise in cross-border mergers and acquisitions and corporate finance matters and joins Apex at a critical time of integration to lead the group’s legal function.
With over 20 years’ legal experience across a broad range of markets and sectors including alternative investment funds and the wider financial services space, Andrew is well placed to help lead the global Apex Group as it pursues its growth strategy around the world.
Peter Hughes (pictured), Founder and CEO, Apex Group, says: “As we pursue our strategy to become the leading global financial services provider, Andrew’s appointment further strengthens our capabilities. Andrew brings a deep level of knowledge and understanding of the legal, commercial and governance requirements at a company of Apex’s size. He will be a highly valuable addition to our leadership team and Executive Committee and we are delighted to welcome him.”
Macklin says: “Apex is a fast moving high growth business and this is a really exciting time to be joining. I have worked with other high-growth companies at this stage of their development and have extensive experience advising across a range of areas including mergers and acquisitions, corporate and commercial transactions and governance and I will look to use my expertise in these areas to help execute on Apex’s objectives in the near and long term. ”
