Aspiren boosts consultancy ranks

One of the fastest-growing consulting firms has announced that it has boosted
its numbers with seven new consultants.

Aspiren, which has reported growth of nearly 70% in the Management
Top 75 firms’ survey, has recruited seven consultants to help
develop and grow the business even further.

The most senior appointment is Evan King, who becomes operations director.
King has previously worked for both Ernst & Young and the accounting firms’
ex-consulting arm Capgemini.

King has extensive performance management consultancy experience and as
operations director will be responsible for helping to ensure the firm’s
continued rapid growth, including the development of strategy and supervising
large multimillion-pound project engagements.

Chris Knighton, CEO of Aspiren, said: ‘The past few years have seen a
significant shift away from the Big Four consulting companies. This has resulted
in an increased demand for the services and expertise of smaller and more
innovative consultancies.’

In addition to King, Anthony Gesell and Grant Rhys Jones have been appointed
to enhance Aspiren’s technology suite and provide IT infrastructure support.

Julie Cochrane has joined as a consultant, while Simon Evans, Steven Philips
and Christian Mason have been brought on board to provide further additional
performance consulting expertise across all sectors.
