Jim Arnold

Chair, CLC Group


I am currently Chair of CLC Group, a property and asset maintenance company, working across sectors including, social housing, healthcare, education retail & commercial and industrial. CLC was backed by HIG Capital in an MBO in 2023.

Prior to this I was CEO at M Group Services, a provider of essential infrastructure services in the UK. Following a period as COO, I was appointed CEO in September 2016 having successfully negotiated the exit from our initial investors to our second PE investors. Following a very successful period, the business was then acquired by PAI partners in 2018.

The business continues to grow very successfully, but having been with the business for over 20 years and as part of my succession planning strategy, I handed over the CEO reins at the start of 2023, and took on the role of Deputy Chair.
