Rake will take up his new post from 1 December replacing David Varney, former chairman of mm02 and newly appointed executive chairman of HM Revenue and Customs.

Julia Cleverdon, chief executive of BIC, said: ‘The Business in the Community board is thrilled to ratify Mike’s appointment as he has played a long term and important role since joining the board as deputy chairman in 1999.’

The Big Four firm won the London Partnership Award for its work in tackling homelessness in London and the award for ‘exceptional achievement’ for its success in managing the firm’s community and environmental performance alongside its financial performance.
