de Poel bolsters its projects and business development capacity
de Poel Group has made three key appointments.
Stephen Lenehan has been appointed as head of projects, and Phil Rudge and George Psomas as business development managers.
As head of projects, Lenehan will oversee the implementation and project management of new clients not just within the NHS and private healthcare sectors, but across de Poel’s entire client base – including logistics, retail and waste management.
Having previously worked for the NHS, Serco Health and Medacs, Lenehan joins directly from Care UK, where he led the mobilisation of key projects across the UK. Prior to this, Stephen operated his own project management and tender consultancy.
Rudge joins de Poel as a former client workforce solutions director at Talent HCM where he was responsible for selling their neutral vendor staffing solution to the NHS, managing their bid, compliance and audit teams and seeing the process right through from the initial meeting to the Go Live date.
Rudges consultative approach and influence has seen him support the expansion of multiple businesses within the healthcare and recruitment space and de Poel have stated he looks forward to supporting the Group in hitting their £1 billion sales target by 2017.
Having originally cut his teeth in recruitment ten years ago as a 360-degree consultant at Mortimer Spinks (part of Harvey Nash Group), Psomas joins from HCL Workforce Solutions, with previous experience also of working at Talent HCM.
Andrew Preston, de Poel Group managing director, said, “I am delighted to welcome Stephen, Phil and George to our projects and business development teams. Not only do they share an abundance of knowledge within the recruitment, NHS and healthcare sectors , but each have their own individual talents, know-how and experience to bring to the table.
“Our people are an asset to helping de Poel Group achieve its ambitious goals and I wish them every success in helping to drive the business forward in 2016 and beyond."
