Roddy Caxton-Spencer, a Lloyd’s broker since 1978, is taking on a new role at the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) where he has been a board member since 2014.
The industry veteran has been elected as LCCI’s new chairman. This adds to Caxton-Spencer’s credentials which include his current position as executive director at Besso Group where he also chairs the international division.
“At what is a crucial time for business in the capital and the UK, I am delighted to become chairman of London Chamber of Commerce and Industry,” he commented.
“As London navigates the challenges and opportunities of the post-Brexit landscape, I hope to bring my global experience to the role and ensure that LCCI is offering the voice and services that businesses across all London’s boroughs require.”
