Hugh Grover  CEO - London CIV

Since October 2014 Hugh has been leading the establishment of the London LGPS Collective Investment Vehicle at London Councils (the representative body for the 32 London boroughs and the City of London), becoming Chief Executive of the company established to operate the CIV in May 2015. Before that he was the policy director at London Councils covering local government finance, performance and procurement. He joined London Councils from the Department for Communities and Local Government in February 2009, where he had a number of roles, including taking three Bills through Parliament and being the Deputy Director responsible for national business rates policy in England. In addition to working closely with all the London boroughs, Hugh has been a Core Finance Adviser to the Local Government Association, a regular adviser to central Government on local government finance issues, has featured in the last two lists of ‘most influential people in local government’ compiled by the Local Government Chronicle, and was named as one of CIPFA’s Top 50 Trailblazers in 2015. Prior to DCLG Hugh was Head of Business Strategy at the Treasury Solicitors Department (the UK Government’s legal agency), which followed a year out studying for his MBA at Imperial College Business School. The first half of Hugh’s career was spent in the communications and marketing industry, including eleven years with the Central Office of Information (at that time the Government’s full service communications agency) where he became Commercial Director for the Publications and Digital Media Group.
