Partner & Chief Executive

Ray Black

I am the Chief Executive at Barlow Robbins. My expertise lies in strategic management within professional services including mergers, acquisitions, strategy formulation and change management. My main areas of responsibility include finance, marketing, human resources and IT. I am also involved in helping formulate the strategy and associated policy of the business.

Prior to joining Barlow Robbins in 2006, I was with a law firm in the North East for a number of years. Throughout my career I have also fulfilled a number of non executive, trustee and consultancy roles.

I have an MBA from Durham University, ACCA (part qualified) and a BSc (Hons). I am also a former regional council member of the CBI North East.
