Lowell appoints Clodagh Gunnigle as Non-Executive Director

Lowell Group (“Lowell”), one of Europe’s leading credit management services providers, has appointed Clodagh Gunnigle as Non-Executive Director (NED) to the company’s UK board, effective from 1 September 2022. As part of her role at Lowell, Clodagh will become Chair of the UK Audit and Risk Committee.

Clodagh Gunnigle brings with her a wealth of experience and knowledge in global financial services and consumer credit, having recently served as Group Chief Risk Officer at Arrow Global PLC. Prior to her role at Arrow she spent 13 years at GE Capital International, including as Chief Credit Officer. Clodagh is also a NED at Alpha Bank London, a private bank specialising in real estate investment, deposits, and investments to high-net-worth clients.

Clodagh will succeed Professor Heather McGregor, who will be stepping down from her NED role with Lowell due to a change in focus and relocation overseas.

Commenting on the appointment John Pears, UK CEO, said: “Having someone of Clodagh’s calibre and track record is fantastic. She brings a wealth of experience, commercial acumen, and customer perspective that will bring us the constructive challenge and guidance we need. With Clodagh’s exceptional work across risk and audit, she’ll play a crucial role in the stewardship of the business as we focus on growth and making credit work better for all.

“I’d also like to thank Professor Heather McGregor for her hugely valuable contribution to the business over the past two years. We wish her all the best for the future.”

Clodagh Gunnigle added: “Lowell does things differently within the credit management sector by putting customers at the heart of everything it does. That was hugely attractive to me when I decided to join this business. I’m looking forward to helping drive it forward in the coming years.”
