Engineer takes over at Xansa

Xansa, the business outsourcing group that provides accounting services to BT, has announced the appointment of a new chief executive.

Alistair Cox will take on the post in August, and will also take up a position on the Xansa board of directors.

He joins from building materials company Lafarge, where he was regional president for Asia. An engineer by training, Cox also has an MBA from Standford Graduate School of Business.

Hilary Cropper, currently the executive chairman, will move to a non-executive role.

Last year Xansa sparked some controversy when it took on a large chunk of BT’s accounting and finance work, forcing many of the telco’s staff to transfer across.

Cropper, welcoming Cox, said she was confident he would ‘continue to develop the ethos of partnership that lies at the heart’ of its business.
