Bedford joins after 10 years with Capita, where he held a range of senior finance positions, including senior divisional finance director for regulated business.
He says: “HML has been through change, but it has emerged stronger and is now entering a period where there is high potential for growth in new and existing markets.
“I was attracted to joining an established yet progressive organisation in a sector I’m familiar with. I understand the need for outsourcers to offer value to clients throughout the relationship and the importance of a strategic partnership approach to business.”
Bedford will be responsible for HML’s finance and business intelligence divisions.
