GCS announces MBO and the appointment of two new Directors.

GCS announces MBO and the appointment of two new Directors.

IT Recruitment Specialists GCS today announce the resignation of long standing Director Martin Smith. Founder and Chairman, Chris Bartlett has acquired full control of GCS and has wasted no time in assembling a new and impressive Board of Directors. Paul Winchester has been promoted to the position of UK Director of Sales, whilst David Bloxham has rejoined GCS in the role of Director of Recruitment Services.
The promotion to UK Director of Sales is a well-deserved step for Paul Winchester. Having joined GCS in 2001 as the Contract Sales Manager for the London office, his tireless work ethic and drive quickly led to him taking overall responsibility for the management of the UK contracts team and, later, the position of Head of Sales for GCS.
The progression that Ive witnessed over the past seven years, from both an individual and company-wide perspective, is incredible says Winchester. It is great to have David back and I have no doubt that the ability to focus my efforts purely on driving the sales efforts of the business will pay huge dividends for everybody at GCS.
Recruiting Paul in 2001 was one of the best things I have ever done for GCS and based on Davids previous track-record at GCS, combined with the depth of knowledge that he has gained in his time away from the company, ensures that the new board will be extremely powerful says Bartlett.
I am delighted to be back at GCS and it is great to be working with Chris again, comments Bloxham. I am looking forward to applying what I have learned over the past four years to the already excellent team at GCS. We have plans to expand into other areas of the recruitment market that have, until now, remained closed to us.
With this strengthening of the Board of Directors, Chris Bartlett believes that the next few years will see GCS go from strength to strength. Both Paul and David are extremely talented, motivated and inspirational leaders and I am very excited about what we can achieve together.
Bartlett paid tribute to Martin Smith, his friend and business partner of 19 years, with whom he originally founded GCS in 1989. Building GCS from the ground up, guiding it through both the downturns and high points of the IT recruitment market, has been an incredible journey and one that would not have been as successful or enjoyable without Martins support and friendship. I wish him every success with his family in Perth, Australia and look forward to accompanying him to the WACA at some point
