Strategic appointment at de Poel

Due to continued rapid business growth – and after a recent management buyout led by CEO Andrew Preston and his senior management team – neutral vendor recruitment outsourcing specialist de Poel has made a key appointment.

Occupying a dominant position in the market since 2001 for its truly independent vendor neutral solution, de Poel’s transparent approach is revolutionising organisations’ relationships with recruitment agencies by introducing clear, effective and cost-saving solutions supported by transformative technology.

Tim Flanagan joins de Poel as Director of Strategy and Commercial, with considerable Director-level experience gained through strategic consultancy assignments and holding senior management positions in FTSE 100 companies. Tim has previously held Managing Director positions at Serco and Capita, as well as being a managing partner of a strategic management consultancy business.

Tim will be responsible for driving value across de Poel’s existing client base, as well as developing further commercially relevant and viable propositions to add to the organisation’s current solutions portfolio. Additionally, he will be responsible for strategic development to ensure de Poel continues to meet the needs of its clients.

Tim says: “I am excited to be joining de Poel, at this phase of its development. The organisation is currently modernising its solutions, which provides a great platform for the next stage of the company’s development. I am looking forward bringing to bear my consulting experience and expertise gained in an outsourcing environment, to drive further value for our customers and stakeholders.”

Andrew Preston, CEO of de Poel group, adds: “In what has been a period of significant change, introducing a new way of working, I am delighted to welcome Tim to de Poel, to head up our strategy and commercial output across the entire group.

“Our people are an asset to helping de Poel group achieve its ambitious goals, and I wish Tim every success in helping to drive the business forward in 2017 and beyond”.
