Cebr appoints Nina Skero Chief Executive

October 1, 2019

Cebr’s board of directors has appointed Ms Nina Skero as Cebr’s new Chief Executive from today 1 October 2019. She succeeds Graham Brough, who has worked as Managing Director and Chief Executive since 2010. Graham will remain with the company and has been appointed Cebr President with responsibility for major accounts. In his new role he will focus on client engagement and business development.


Nina is currently Cebr Director of Operations. Previously, she served as Head of Macroeconomics, leading the firm’s forecasting and overseeing part of the company’s bespoke client research. As a member of Cebr’s senior leadership team, she has played an integral role in the company’s consistent growth over recent years.

‘I am very excited that Nina has agreed to take on this post’ said Douglas McWilliams, Cebr founder and Deputy Chairman. ‘In her five years with the company she has shown herself to be a remarkably impressive leader. I would also like to congratulate Graham Brough on his successful period running the company over the past nine years during which he has doubled the size of the business and made huge strides in developing our brand and our credibility. I can also assure our clients that Graham and I both intend to stay involved with Cebr. Having completed the Peking to Paris Endurance Car Rally and published my new book ‘The Inequality Paradox’ I am now in a position to contribute more to Cebr’s forecasting and other work’.


‘I am immensely honoured to lead the extraordinary team at Cebr as Chief Executive,’ said Skero. ‘I am proud of the work we have done in developing innovative economic techniques, growing the client base and establishing ourselves as one of the most prominent economic commentators in the UK and globally. Going forward, we will remain focused on delivering strong results for our clients, as well as being a rewarding place to work.’
