Randall and Quilter (R&Q) has confirmed that co-founder Ken Randall has retired as executive chairman and was succeeded by William Spiegel in the role.
The news follows the company’s previous announcement made on 9 July 2020, that Randall would retire after 30 years at the company’s helm; he has also stepped down as a director.
Commenting on his departure Randall, said: “The one constant since I co-founded R&Q is the quality of its people, from Alan who I’ve worked with since the start through to William as my successor, and it is these people who have underpinned our success.
“Not only does he share the entrepreneurial flair that is part of R&Q’s DNA, but since joining he has demonstrated a clear ambition to further accelerate R&Q’s growth across its two core businesses and beyond.”
Alan Quilter, group CEO and co-founder, added: “Ken’s direction, energy and vision have been key to this success, while he has been pivotal in building an outstanding senior management team which is now taking the Group to the next level.
“Ken retires from R&Q with the business in great shape. I wish Ken all the best for his retirement.”
