AAB announces significant HR appointment

Anderson Anderson & Brown (AAB), the tech enabled business critical services group, has announced the appointment of Rob Jarvis as HR Director, based in the business’ London office.

Rob has significant experience in the HR arena, having held senior leadership positions within the private sector over the last 10 years, most recently as Global Head of HR at Sera Global. He has a proven track record of coaching senior leaders and employees, directing various teams to achieve targeted goals, and streamlining HR processes to support organisations in meeting their corporate objectives.

This new role will see Rob growing the AAB HR team, delivering transformational HR projects, as well as supporting the M&A activity of the wider AAB Group. Whilst the role is focused within the internal HR team, Rob’s experience means he is well-placed to support the growth of AAB’s outsourced HR offering.

AAB’s vision is to become a tech-enabled business critical services group across finance and HR. With this goal in mind, the business has been growing organically and through M&A activity over the last few years. Several significant mergers and acquisitions were announced throughout 2021, including the acquisition of Edinburgh-based Purpose HR, and mergers with accountancy firms Hardie Caldwell and Sagars.

Graeme Allan, Chief Executive at AAB said, “We are delighted that Rob has joined AAB. His appointment not only facilitates our ongoing succession development plan, but also our ambitious growth plans.

“Rob is already well-known across our business, having worked with us for many years as a client, so we have no doubt that his knowledge and expertise will enable him to lead our HR team through this next stage of our journey. His experience also means he will play a key role in the growth of our outsourced HR offering to support the expanding AAB Group.”

Commenting on his appointment, Rob added, “AAB’s ambitious plans have been widely reported over the last 12-18 months, so it is great to be joining the team at what is an incredibly exciting time.  

“I look forward to the unique opportunity to work with the teams across internal HR, outsourced HR and the wider leadership across the group, and of course working with some familiar faces again too.”
