London-based data consultancy Sagacity has announced the appointment of former British Gas MD, Ian Peters, as its new Chairman. The move precedes an anticipated period of significant growth for the company in 2024. Peters has been advising the company strategically since 2018, and will now lead Sagacity's boardroom and veteran management team.

Peters has gathered expansive managerial experience in several of the UK's largest and niche companies across various industries including Energy, Housing, Non-Profit, and Public sectors. In recent years, he has also invested in and chaired several rapidly growing technology and data-centric businesses that are owned by private equity. Currently, he also holds chair roles at UK Health Security Agency, Legal & General Affordable Homes, and IMServ Limited.

Sagacity, which operates mainly in the Energy, Water, Financial Services, Healthcare, and Non-Profit sectors, is well positioned to capitalise on Peters' multi-sector insights. His expertise will supplement Sagacity's robust growth plans as they evolve throughout 2024 and beyond.

CEO of Sagacity, Anita Dougall, expressed her pleasure for Peters' transition from his advisory role. "We are delighted that Ian has agreed to move from his successful advisory role to be our Chair. I’d like to thank him for the support he’s provided to us prior to now and we look forward to what will be a continuation of a productive relationship between Ian, our management team, our investors Queen’s Park Equity, and our Non Executives," Dougall said. She also highlighted the importance of his leadership and experience in Sagacity's growth and assured that his expertise will greatly contribute to transforming the company's solutions and services, and facilitating the achievement of their growth strategy.

Peters also shared his satisfaction regarding his new role. "I am delighted to become Sagacity’s Chair and increase my support to Anita, Malka, Harry, and the Sagacity team. I have advised the business for five years, understand what Sagacity embodies and firmly believe that the company is well placed for successful growth. I will steer the business to ensure that our existing and future clients receive tangible benefits, innovative solutions, and substantial return on their investment," Peters stated.

Sagacity is revered for its work with premier enterprises across the country, aiding them in making insightful decisions powered by the intelligent use of data. Established in 2005, the company prioritises customer needs, demonstrating this with its impressive +82 Net Promoter Score, a metric used to gauge customer satisfaction and brand reputation.
