AlixPartners Appoint Rob Hornby as Managing Director

AlixPartners, the global business advisory firm, has appointed Rob Hornby as Managing Director. Hornby was formerly CIO of Old Mutual Wealth Management Group.

Stefano Aversa, co-President and head of AlixPartners in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, said, “Companies who are undergoing major, fast-paced changes look at ways technology can help solving their business problems, improving their operations and getting ahead of the competition. Rob’s deep experience in leveraging IT to its fullest in a broad range of circumstances will enhance our Information Management Services practice offering to all our clients in the UK and Europe.”

Hornby will work within a team that offers the full range of services in electronic discovery and corporate information management. His main focus will be on AlixPartners’ “Enterprise Technology Services” offering — helping clients to use data as a driver of real strategic value.

Hornby combines experience in start-up, consulting and FTSE 100 organisations. He held chief information officer, application development and maintenance director, and programme director positions at Old Mutual’s Skandia subsidiary and at Sky Television plc. Hornby is highly experienced in delivering IT transformations through restructuring, outsourcing and re-platforming. His work has enabled new business strategies to emerge and has resulted in major cost reductions. He has also led the planning and implementation of strategic business-intelligence solutions.

Commenting on his appointment, Hornby said, “AlixPartners’ approach of offering clients highly experienced people, for only as long as it takes, is a model I believe is right for the future.  I look forward to helping our clients to truly get full value from their IT assets”.
