“Benny has vast financial sector experience, coupled with a social and philanthropic conscience, and it’s these combined attributes which attracted us to him, and which align so well with our plans for the future.”

Higgins added: “I am thrilled to be joining Markerstudy Group at such a pivotal moment and appreciate the opportunity to provide counsel.

“Post-pandemic, the ‘new’ normal which Markerstudy is wholeheartedly embracing includes a deeper understanding of an organisation’s impact on the environment, and its social and governance principles.

“ESG is a top priority for Markerstudy, and I am passionate about supporting change for improvement across my non-executive portfolio.”
