New appointments

STAR Consulting, Knowledgepool and Adkins Matchett & Toy have each announced new appointments to their management teams.

STAR Consulting has recruited Alison Mans a their new Supplier Manager.

"We've won a number of large contracts recently and this has led to several new appointments at STAR. Alison joins us at a very exciting time", said Daniel Sellar, STAR's General Manager.

Mans commented: "I'm working with suppliers to implement the proper processes and negotiate reseller discounts. As a company, we are looking to expand our managed service operations and I'm looking forward to the challenge."

STAR is supporting Alison as she studies for a Graduate Diploma with the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply.

Knowledgepool has announced that it's to focus on providing outsourced learning services and has made two new appointments to champion the change of emphasis.

Rod Edwards has been appointed as Chief Executive and Paul Jefferson has been recruited as Managing Director of its managed learning division.

Before joining KnowledgePool, Edwards was President and General Manager for Europe at TeleTech, a global teleservices and outsourced customer relationship management company. Prior to this, he spent eight years at Electronic Data Systems (EDS), latterly as Vice President of Strategic Sales, across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

"Outsourcing is an attractive, low risk strategy that enables an organisation to increase capacity, reduce administration costs and accommodate fluctuating workloads," said Edwards. "It is a compelling business proposition. We can help clients free up their resources from low-level training tasks so they can concentrate on their pressing HR concerns. Our priorities now are to build on the successful KnowledgePool brand and to grow the business."

Paul Jefferson has 15 years experience in management consultancy and operational roles. As Managing Director of managed learning, he is responsible for the division's key client accounts.

Adkins Matchett & Toy, Ltd. (AMT), part of The Matchett Group, announced that Anandhi Stanislaus, formerly a vice president at J.P. Morgan, has joined the training firm as an instructor in financial modelling, valuation and corporate finance.

According to AMT president Kathleen Adkins, Ms. Stanislaus brings to the classroom her broad range of investment banking experience at J.P. Morgan, where she structured complex transactions for the telecommunications and consumer products industries. "Anandhi sparkles in the classroom," said Ms. Adkins.

Dr. Norman Toy, a principal of AMT and a faculty member at Columbia Business School, said, "You can't run a team of associates and analysts without knowing more than they do. Anandhi has been in the trenches of investment banking. She knows what works and what doesn't."

"I'm delighted to be joining AMT. It's the gold standard when it comes to training finance professionals," noted Ms. Stanislaus. "We teach practical applications that people can use right away on the job."
