As the Consenna team continues to grow, just before Christmas we welcomed Lee Anderson to the role of Programme Operations Manager.  Based in our Renfrewshire Head Office, Lee brings with him a wealth of experience in business operations across a diverse range of sectors and this, coupled with his in-depth knowledge of managing sales teams, make him a great addition to our team.  Here he tells us more about what he’s hoping to bring to the Consenna party.

My career to date has been spent largely in technical engineering recruitment, primarily within the oil & gas and energy markets.   Starting out in the late nineties, I rose through the ranks and for the past ten years I’ve held director-level roles that have really seen me focus on business operations and the successful management of sales teams.

However, always keen to take on new challenges, I started to consider how my skills, knowledge and experience could be utilised outside of the world of recruitment!

With an essentially blank sheet of paper in front of me, I considered which sectors were ones of interest and instantly thought of technology!  It’s an area I’ve always had a particular interest in and it’s a market that, I believe, will continue to grow and evolve for the foreseeable future.

Then, when I came across Consenna, it became very clear to me that this was a business I’d like to work for!  Simply, the people within it and the plans in place for the firm’s continued growth made me sit up and take notice!

As a rapidly growing young business, bursting with enthusiasm and committed to delivering successful sales effectiveness programmes for Global IT players, I felt confident it was a team where I’d be able to add value with my experience.  The projects we’ve already won and the whole team’s passion to do things differently makes this a very exciting place to be working!

I consider myself to be adaptable and I’ve got a strong work ethic which will, no doubt, come into good use as we continue to grow.  Being naturally inquisitive and analytical, I’m confident that I’ll not only support the teams in delivering on new projects and exceeding client expectations, but also in growing our already enviable portfolio of global IT clients and associated projects.  Even now, it is clear that the growth here at Consenna will ensure my role continues to evolve which is an exciting prospect!

Of course, there is life away from work too!  Here, I can be found married to Rebecca with whom I have two sons, Max and Sam and whilst they like to keep me busy on taxi duties, I do also have a strong passion for cars and motorbikes.  I recently completed a 1000-mile trip around Scotland on the bike and when the boys get a bit older, I’d also really like to do some road trips around Europe.
