The business’ co-founders and former managing directors, Eman Al-Hillawi and Peter Marsden, are stepping into the new roles as part of Entec Si’s move to a new consultancy-based operating model. As CEO, Eman will be responsible for the company’s day-to-day operational running, including the delivery of its business plan, financial management and the development of its senior leadership team. Peter will focus on guiding Entec Si’s long-term strategic direction, including business planning, the formation of new commercial partnerships, and identifying future growth areas.
Entec Si’s recent move to a new consultancy structure will enable the business to strengthen its cross-sector service offering, while helping to accelerate the development of its people. Under the new model, the team will be made up of seven different levels of consultants. Rather than focusing on specialisms, such as data analysis, people will receive training in a wide variety of consultancy skills, enabling team members to support clients on all aspects of a project.
During the pandemic, the business has also kept up its strong commitment to people development by sponsoring 21 people across the organisation to take part in training sessions or complete professional qualifications.
Eman Al-Hillawi, CEO at Entec Si, commented:
“The way that we have pulled together and grown stronger over the last year and a half has demonstrated the resilience of our team and what can be achieved with the right people around us. Peter and I are now ready to take the next step on Entec Si’s growth journey and we believe that our new roles will be key to taking the business to the next level.”
Peter Marsden, executive chair at Entec Si, said:
“Being a managing director at Entec Si has been a hugely rewarding experience but taking on the role of executive chair will enable Eman and I to embrace new challenges, while playing to our strengths. Our continued investment in the next generation of consultants is also vital for passing on the leadership baton, while ensuring that the business delivers exceptional consultancy for years to come.”
