Northgate Education appoints three new Client Directors for BSF opportunities

Northgate Education today announces the appointment of three new Client Directors – Alan Neild-Crabb, John Parkinson and Rhys Thomas.

The posts have been created to support an increased drive into the education market as the company bids for a range of projects under the government’s Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme.

Reporting to BSF Director, David Hyland, Alan, John and Rhys will hold responsibility for:

• Developing and implementing overall client strategies;
• Leading bid teams, including commercial, financial and solutions experts;
• Managing relationships with key partners such as Partnerships for Schools.

Alan Neild-Crabb was previously a self-employed consultant working for Ramesys, John Parkinson was previously Head of Business Development at BT Education and Rhys Thomas joins from Royal Mail Group, where he was General Manager for the North of England.

The appointments follow Northgate’s first BSF win in Bristol, where it is working with the Local Education Partnership to deliver ‘personalised’ learning, raised attainment, improved access to ICT, enhanced assessment and reduced bureaucracy.

Darren Lemon, Managing Director of Northgate Education, said today:

“I am delighted to welcome Alan, John and Rhys to Northgate’s BSF team. Their experience will be invaluable to us as we work on a growing number of opportunities in this area. Northgate is committed to working collaboratively with our clients and their partners, and I know that all three new Client Directors share this commitment. I look forward to working with them to deliver Northgate’s vision of teachers and pupils empowered by technology and working within transformed learning environments that are fit for the twenty first century.”
