You may well have seen some of our recent PR in the Scotsman and other publications and also in these blog posts, telling you about the (lots of hard) work we’ve been doing over the last few years and our plans for new offices and operations in London and Germany.
Be-IT has come a long way in a short time, but we’re not resting on our laurels. To that end, I’m delighted to have been able to announce the appointment of Kai Murray as our first Non-Executive Director and also some major internal appointments that will set the direction for the company in the next few years.
Kai’s role will be significant. As far as I’m concerned, she ticks all the boxes and will assume responsibility for aligning our business strategy and expansion plans in both the short and medium term. I am delighted to have secured someone with such an outstanding reputation in the sector. We are aiming to have a London presence by the summer and be up and running in the German market within the next 18 months.
The promotion of Alma Kettles to Associate Director for Process and Quality was announced earlier this year. I’m also pleased to say that Stuart Alexander has been named our Business Operational Manager. Stuart remains based in Edinburgh and has responsibility for helping to ensure that Be-IT consolidates and builds upon its existing, solid and profitable foundations.
Senior consultant Ami Islam will play a key role in supporting Kai and me by spearheading our drive into the London IT recruitment market, while Owen Howells has been appointed to lay the groundwork for the Frankfurt hub. Owen has over 15 years’ specialist experience in the German, Swiss and Austrian recruitment market and he is a welcome addition to our team. The demand for IT specialists is increasing all the time and we see London and Frankfurt as obvious magnets for growing our business.
