Matrix appoints staffing industry veteran MacMillan chairman

Recruitment technology business Matrix has appointed staffing industry veteran Richard MacMillan as chairman, as the company gears up for a new stage of growth.

MacMillan is also chairperson of specialist staffing company Trinnovo Group and a trustee of Forest Holme Hospice Charity. He takes over from Simon Gibbs, chairman of Fortius, who has stepped back to focus on other business endeavours.

Previously, MacMillan had been CEO at healthcare staffing and services company Independent Clinical Services (ICS) for 14 years. During his tenure, he led the growth and diversification of ICS through three periods of private equity ownership until the company sold in September 2020, in which time ICS completed a number of acquisitions, expanded its international presence and developed a number of innovative healthcare services. Before that, he held various leadership roles over eight years at Adecco.

Matrix provides a neutral vendor service and end-to-end process in one marketplace technology platform.
