Mitie has appointed Tori Cowley to its executive leadership team as group director of corporate affairs and investor relations, reporting to CEO Phil Bentley.
Cowley joins Mitie from the London Stock Exchange Group, where she was responsible for all group communications and marketing since 2010.
Prior to joining the LSE, she was head of corporate affairs for Thomson Reuters, EMEA, and head of financial communications at Reuters.
She began her career at Price Waterhouse in London, qualifying as a chartered accountant, before moving into corporate finance. She has worked at comms consultancies including Powerscourt and Citigate Dewe Rogerson.
“We are delighted Tori has joined Mitie,” said Bentley. “She has an impressive track record helping businesses execute ambitious strategies and delivering successful corporate affairs programmes, often in periods of significant change.”
Cowley added: “With over 53,000 employees and customers ranging from blue-chip businesses to hospitals and hotels across the country, the group is changing the way successful organisations operate. The opportunity to be part of that is compelling and I am very much looking forward to working with Phil and the whole Mitie team.”
