New vice-president and board members appointed by...

The Management Consultancies Association (MCA) has appointed a new vice-president and has elected several board members.

Claire Kennedy, the joint managing director of PPL Consulting, has been selected as the vice-president of the body, which is the trade association for UK-based consulting firms.

Ms Kennedy will be joined on the MCA board by Andy Tinlin from Accenture, Geoff Kneen from Atkins and John Lockton from LCP Consulting. Chris Cooper, founder and head of Challenge Consulting, will remain in his role as president of the body for a second year.

The new vice-president, who co-founded PPL back in 2007 with Simon Morioka, has been a member of the MCA board since 2013. 

She has more than a decade's worth of experience working at the heart of the public sector improvement agenda, managing complex change projects across multiple service areas and delivering measurable benefits to both customers and staff.

Ms Kennedy's front line experience includes supervising a team of more than 60 permanent and contract staff members and a budget of over £10 million for the London Borough of Lambeth as part of the local authority's journey to improvement.

In reference to her appointment, she said: "PPL has been helping to shape the management consultancy sector for a number of years, through our award-winning work to implement practical and innovative change with our clients and partners, and through our strategic work with the MCA.

"I am delighted to have been elected as vice-president, and look forward to continuing to make a positive impact within a profession that makes a real difference within the UK economy."

Alan Leaman, chief executive office of the MCA, explained that Ms Kennedy takes on her new role at an exciting time for the industry and body as it develops its Consulting Excellence programme, which aims to promote high standards in the sector.

He added that the MCA is delighted that three new consulting leaders have been elected to the board, as they will be able to bring their insights and experience of working with both small and large firms to the body.
