Hawkins to join Compre as COO


Compre, the independent legacy acquirer, today announces that Simon Hawkins will, subject to relevant regulatory approvals, join as chief operating officer of the group in quarter three, 2018.

Hawkins brings over 20 years of legacy-sector experience, which will support Compre’s ambition of achieving further strong, sustained growth. He will join from QBE where, as group head of retrospective solutions, he developed one of the most proactive approaches to legacy management in the industry.

Mark Lawson, co-CEO of Compre, said: “We are delighted Simon is joining the business at this exciting time for Compre, given the ever-increasing opportunities for growth in the legacy market. Simon will bring a wealth of experience to Compre across global transaction structuring and legacy management excellence, which will enable the business to continue to thrive and meet its ambitious growth plans. I look forward to working closely with Simon to maximise the potential for Compre and to provide creative legacy solutions to the counterparties we work with.”
