Will Crookes and Patrick Johnson have been promoted to consultant, the first promotions within thevaluecircle’s core team.
A representation of the firm’s growth and maturity, but also its commitment to developing the team, both Will and Patrick have been promoted just 11 months after they joined the specialist management consultancy during lockdown in early 2021.
Managing partner David Cockayne said: “It makes me immensely proud to reward Will and Patrick’s hard work, tenacity and professional approach with these promotions. They also represent a maturing of thevaluecircle itself as we grow our own talent alongside increasing our client base.
“Supporting young people in the workplace is one of the privileges of running a business, and it’s been a pleasure to watch Will and Patrick grow into their roles here at TVC. Each of them has delivered way beyond what would reasonably be expected for any early-career young person.
“Add in the pressure of doing their interviews and working their first few months entirely remotely, having never met any of the team, and their achievements are even more impressive.”
Will has spent the last 11 months working on developing organisational strategy, the transformation of organisations, and has managed some very sensitive and confidential reviews. He will take on more project management, not just delivery, during 2022.
Patrick’s strengths have been in framing issues for clients, working on risk management, and tricky service reviews, along with a penchant for data. Patrick now takes on line management responsibilities and will also spend more time on project delivery in his new role.
David continues: “I know clients will join me in congratulating Will and Patrick. These bright young people lend us a fresh perspective, along with an energy and verve that the whole TVC team appreciates. We are as ambitious for our own team as we are for our clients, so announcing these promotions is a brilliant way to end the year.”
