CC lawyer quits for Whittington in-house job

Singapore-based Whittington Group has appointed a new group general counsel from magic circle firm Clifford Chance to lead its global expansion strategy.

Ross Bundey, who joins after three years at the Singapore office of Clifford Chance, will step into his new role with the insurance investor and services provider next month.

Bundey will report to group chief executive Tony Hobrow, with his role extending to duties in acquisition and investment activity.

He has an extensive background in corporate M&A work across Asia, the Middle East and Australia, as well as advising on private equity matters.

Hobrow said the appointment of Bundey coincides with the company’s growth strategy in Asia and Europe. He added: “One of his key skills sets is in M&A, which further reinforces our ambitions in that area.”
