McHarg joins Apollo during an exciting period of development. She will help to build on recent growth and to further develop the financial strategy of the group through collaboration with capital partners, investors, and wider stakeholders.
She joins from Bupa, where she was most recently CFO for international markets, leading global strategic change and transformation.
