Browne Jacobson partner appointed to BPS Board

21 November 2016
Tim Rayner, property partner in Browne Jacobson’s Birmingham office, has been appointed as a board director to BPS Birmingham, the voice of the Business and Professional Services sector in Greater Birmingham.

Tim specialises in property-related disputes with a strong bias towards commercial property both advisory and actual or potential litigation. Tim’s particular specialism is dilapidations disputes with a wide range of clients including international retailers, developers, pension funds, private investors, local authorities, central government agencies and health organisations. He joins two other Board appointments: Andy Cawthray who is a Director in KPMG’s Midlands practice  and Nina Clewes, HSBC HR lead for the transition of people from London to Birmingham as well as being Head of HR for M&S Bank.

The three appointments will give the Board an even greater representation across the sector and join existing directors from organisations such as Deloitte and Wesleyan and further strengthen its leadership capacity.

BPS Birmingham continues its work representing the interests of the Business and Professional Services Sector in Greater Birmingham. Chair Ahmed Farooq recently gave evidence to the London Finance Commission and the organisation has made a submission to the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Strategic Economic Plan consultation. Following on from the success of this year’s Professional Services Week, which saw twenty schools from within Birmingham visit professional firms and hear about the opportunities for future employment within the sector, BPS Birmingham have announced they will run the initiative again next summer.

Commenting on the new appointments to the Board, BPS Birmingham Chair, Ahmed Farooq said;

“I am delighted to welcome Andy, Nina and Tim to the Board. All three bring a breadth of experience and knowledge that will undoubtedly strengthen the leadership of our organisation. The region and the sector will face significant challenges and opportunities in the coming months and years as we navigate Brexit and operate in a new political landscape locally with an elected Mayor. BPS Birmingham will play its part ensuring the voice of the sector is heard as these transformational changes fall into place.  Strengthening and expanding the Board of BPS Birmingham at this time will provide us with an opportunity to develop further the offer to our members.”
