As well as being promoted to COO, Tara will also join the BBA board.

Rob McCormack joined the BBA in August 2017, leading a dedicated transformation team. Over the past four years he has driven a number of transformation projects across the company as part of the BBA’s journey of continuous improvement. This includes the expansion of BBA’s offices with the opening of its Liverpool branch in 2020 along with the recruitment of 25 colleagues. Following this, Rob led internal project teams aimed to design and roll out BBA’s improved ways of working to deliver first-class client experience. Rob is currently heading up the digitisation of this operation, establishing a compliance-based approach to product certification.

Rob has also been promoted to become a member of the Senior Leadership Team (SLT), reporting to the CEO.
