Six Degrees appoints new Chief People Officer, enabling the company to differentiate itself as the UK’s leading secure technology solutions provider by keeping people at the heart of everything it does.
London, UK, Tuesday 7th June, 2022 – Six Degrees is pleased to confirm the appointment of Lindsay Gallard as Chief People Officer (CPO).
Lindsay joined Six Degrees in 2018 and has served in a variety of roles including Executive Operations Director. Most recently, Lindsay has been in-post as Interim People Director since January 2022.
Prior to Six Degrees, Lindsay worked in a series of senior HR roles covering the UK and Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific. He has a varied background in organisations spanning the public, not-for-profit and private sectors.
Lindsay is a Chartered Member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and believes in building a best-in-class framework that will continue to maximise the potential of Six Degrees’ people.
Six Degrees is pleased to be able to promote from within for this role, bringing to bear Lindsay’s commercial HR acumen with his deep understanding of Six Degrees and its strategy, its services and ways of working and, above all else, its people.
Lindsay said: “When we say, ‘people are at the heart of what we do’, that’s not just lip service. It is the passion of our people that will ultimately deliver an outstanding experience for our clients. This, in turn, will see Six Degrees really differentiate itself as the UK’s leading secure technology solutions provider. For me, that all comes from creating a truly inclusive environment where every individual can thrive. I am excited to continue to champion that from this role.”
Commenting on the appointment, Six Degrees CEO Simon Crawley-Trice said: “We truly are in unprecedented times. We are seeing a major shift towards hybrid working, demands for a different work-life balance, and significant mobility as people who were biding their time throughout the pandemic are now looking for career growth.
“The war for talent is intensifying, and IT services will continue to be one of the most competitive industries. We are pleased to welcome Lindsay to the role of CPO; his deep HR expertise, drive for leading-edge practice and, above all, commitment to our people will put us on the best footing to attract and retain the prime talent we need.”
