hibob welcomes Lady Barbara Judge as Chairman

We are incredibly proud to announce that Lady Barbara Judge is joining hibob to Chair our board of directors.

Having started her career as a lawyer, Lady Judge quickly became the first ever female partner of a Law Firm on Wall Street, Head of the SEC, and today is seen as a huge supporter & advocate of UK business with her role as Chairman of the Institute of Directors and as ambassador for UKTI.

Lady Barbara has also just finished her tenure as Chairman of the Pension Protection Fund, so she is uniquely positioned to help us ensure that we are delivering the most effective solution for Pensions Auto-Enrolment and other Benefits in the UK.

Ronni Zehavi, co-founder and CEO of hibob, says: “Lady Barbara’s track-record in supporting British SMEs and the pension industry is second to none. She has the perfect blend of top down policy thinking on pensions, but also a critical bottom up understanding of British Business. She will be a huge asset to us as we grow our Pension and Benefit offering.”

Lady Judge says: “I was delighted to meet the founders of hibob as my tenure at the PPF was coming to a close. We quickly realised we shared the same passion for helping small businesses in general, but also more specifically, to help them deliver Auto Enrolment in a way that is efficient and engaging. Something that businesses, and particularly young, people are struggling with.”

This is the first big news since our funding announcement in June this year. And once again demonstrates the huge potential and opportunity that hibob has not only in sorting HR and people management, but also in delivering an effective Pension & Benefits solution for businesses.
