New head of compliance appointed

Sam has been an experienced independent ISO consultant for many years and has moved from working one day a week for CRM to being full-time in the first-ever in-house compliance role at the firm. 

Sam specialised in ensuring compliance for clinical manufacturing, petrochemical, and aerospace industries. 

He said: “It will be my job to ensure we stay compliant with all certifications and look for continual improvement at data management, process and control levels. I am delighted to be joining a business I know well in a Group I respect. I look forward to getting going.”

Under Sam, CRM is now certified to the ISO27001 compliance standard by UKAS accredited body, Alcumus IAOQAR. 

An ISO27001 certification demonstrates the highest level of information security controls within a firm, providing peace of mind around the safety and security of data. 

The company has also won the sought-after ISO9001 quality-based process standard. This certification demonstrates effective and repeatable outputs to clients and stakeholders, proving the outstanding level at which the CRM company operates.

Tony Roche, CRM Director said the business was hardening the IT infrastructure to help growth plans. He said: “This investment in Sam is part of our long-term strategy to ensure we have good foundations to build the company. It sends a strong message to our existing and future blue chip lending and restructuring partners that we are committed to the highest standards of operations – independently verified every year.”
