“The difference Steve brought to the team was highly visible through the level of contribution seen by the business from the HR function. He clearly knows his subject, was a strong and effective contributor to my team and was high on integrity. He senses what managers worry about, takes this on board and then draws on his wealth of experience to offer creative and practical HR interventions that further enhance the overriding business goals.”
Managing Director. Your Move.
Steve was brought in by Actix to establish a professional HR capability following the acquisition of the Company by the venture capitalist Summit Partners. His role was to identify & deliver a range of HR Services to the business which had not previously employed any professional HR capability & with many managers sceptical about what HR could offer Actix. Steve very quickly established a high level of credibility across the management team & built strong effective relationships at all levels. He has a very clear vision of what HR can offer a business and has a very pragmatic style of how this is delivered. I have no hesitation in recommending Steve. He is commited, focussed and highly professional and displays a good level of commercial management acumen in addition to his wide ranging HR skill set.

This provides him with a high level of personal credibility and enhances the reputation of HR within the business. Steve has built strong personal relationships with Management within the UK and France which is one of the strengths of the way he operates I have no hesitation in recommending Steve as a highly experienced and professional Interim”
