New HR director appointment at leadership consultancy Thursday 24 May 2007 PDF Print Leadership development consultancy, the Centre for High Performance Development(CHPD), has appointed Carol Evans as human resources director. Carol was formerly HR director at WCI plc, a consulting and technology company and joined CHPD on 8 May 2007. Carol worked with CHPD on a consultancy basis for a year before making the decision to join the management team. When asked about the move Carol said: “I have worked with many companies and the attraction with CHPD was, without doubt, the people. Julia Payne (CEO) and the other members of the senior management team are the sort of people I want to work with and that is of paramount importance to me in my role. And apart from that I know I can have fun as we grow the company!” Carol’s key skills are in working with the executive team to ensure that HR is fully supporting the business in its achievement of the corporate goals. Carol has experience of managing change as a company grows and experiences the inevitable challenges of rapid expansion via organic growth or merger or acquisition. The challenges for any HR director taking a company through these stages is one of careful balance between commercial restraints and ensuring that best practice HR processes are embedded into the organisation. Carol has a proven track record in achieving this balance. Carol lives in Romsey on the south coast and she uses her skills of the workplace in her role as governor at a Hampshire-based boarding school. She is also active in the local community and has recently completed a five-year period as a parish councillor. -ENDS- Notes to editors: The Centre for High Performance Development (CHPD) is a leadership development consultancy.
