UK consultancy Entec Si has appointed a trio of consultants to help build its project management offering. Sue Johnson Gregory, Richard Dobson and Clare Aris arrive at the firm on the back of rapid growth in terms of headcount and revenues at Entec Si.

Entec Si has enjoyed bullish growth over the last year. The firm posted a turnover of £2.2 million for the year to 31 March 2018, a rise from £1.4 million in the prior 12 months. The company, based at Alpha Tower – a Grade II listed office skyscraper initially designed by Birmingham-born architect George Marsh as the headquarters of commercial television company ATV – has also almost doubled its workforce over the same period.

Recently, Entec Si has worked with Birmingham Airport and assisted with the service changes at Birmingham Library, and amid this demand it has taken the move to boost its project management wing. The Birmingham-based business change consultancy has revealed it is on track for continued growth this year, with three new hires across the business, and further role creation expected in the near future.

Sue Johnson Gregory joins as a Principal Consultant. Earlier in her career, she spent time in the same role at Capita and Serco, before a spell with Wesleyan, where she worked as a Project Manager and Senior Continuous Improvement Consultant. She will now work closely with Entec Si’s directors, Eman Al-Hillawi and Peter Marsden, to develop the business’ growth strategy, while also taking a lead role in the organisation’s recent progression into the health sector.

Clare Aris further strengthens the firm’s project management expertise, joining the team as a project manager after holding a senior role within the NHS. She was a Director at CAA Warwickshire, having joined in 2014, and presided over a number of streamlining projects in that time.

Richard Dobson has been appointed as a project co-ordinator, following a successful career within the financial services sector. Dobson also spent time with Wesleyan, working for the last four years in Project Support at the firm.

Coinciding with the trio of appointments, the company has also launched an apprenticeship programme as part of the drive to create new opportunities for young people. The scheme will expose new recruits to a variety of disciplines across the business, giving them the opportunity to find inspiration and guidance for their future career development.

Eman Al-Hillawi, principal consultant at business change consultancy Entec Si, commented, “This is an incredibly exciting time for Entec Si. With our project portfolio continuing to grow, we’re always on the lookout for experienced project managers and business analysts to help us to continue delivering exceptional results to our clients. We are also committed to nurturing the next generation of business change talent, which is why we’re launching our own apprenticeship scheme.”
