Legal Ombudsman Chief Exec announces leaving date

The Chief Executive for the Legal Ombudsman (LeO) has announced he is to leave the organisation in September after nearly two years at the helm.

Nick Hawkins informed the board of the Office of Legal Complaints (OLC) in March of his plan to step down once he had helped with a smooth transition for the new OLC Chair Wanda Goldwag.

Advertisements have today gone out to find Mr Hawkins’ successor ahead of his final day on 30 September.

OLC Chair Wanda Goldwag said: “Nick has been a great asset and stabilising influence to the Legal Ombudsman since he joined in October 2015 and I hold him in high regard.

“I personally am very sad that I will not be working with Nick for longer, but I am grateful that he stayed long enough to make my arrival as Chair so smooth.”
