Sir Michael Rake has joined the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) to chair its UK operation and strengthen the voice of UK business at a global level, as featured in City AM. He will draw on his expertise at BT Group and World Pay, as well as from his former roles as President of CBI, Deputy Chairman of Barclays and at the Prime Minister’s Business Advisory Council.
With economic uncertainty and volatile conflicts ever-present, UK business needs support influencing global governments to focus on providing a pro-growth business environment.
Sir Michael comments: “ICC is the global organization that connects companies from all corners of the globe to influence and create the rules that govern the entire business and trading landscape. The opinion of UK business is valued and highly sought-after across the world, but they need to be heard – our priority is to give them a voice.”
