Career Change Bids Well For Executive Compass

Christian goes from trainee to MD in five years

Career Change Bids Well For Executive Compass

"Our aim is to double turnover in five years "
Christian Rowe MD

A bid writing specialist that just five years ago spent 18 months as a trainee learning his craft has been appointed as Managing Director of the firm and has also bought into the business, as a significant shareholder. 

Christian Rowe spent two decades in the recruitment business before joining Executive Compass as a trainee bid writer. His transferable skills were put to good use together with his passion to learn and his ethical and quality approach to business. 

Now, based in the company’s Newcastle’s Hoults Yard offices, Christian oversees the preparation of bids and selection questionnaires for its clients which range from owner-managed SME businesses to multi-national companies.

Christian’s new position became vacant when founder of the business Neil Capstick decided to take time away from the day to day running of the company to concentrate on his Doctorate in Business Administration specialising in  Social Value and to set up their new division - The Social Value Practice. 

The thirst for knowledge and continuous staff development runs in the veins of the business. Christian is due to graduate from his MBA with Durham University in October and many of his team are graduates studying for industry related qualifications.

Executive Compass now employs 21 staff with office footprints in the Midlands, Glasgow and London as well as the flagship Newcastle site. 

“I’ve taken over at a time when we are helping a lot of our clients succeed in their tender processing. We have an annual turnover of £1.4 million and plan to double this within five years. We’ve promoted Stephen Kennet to the critical role of Director of Social Value and also appointed a number of new bid writers who will help to take the business forward including Daniel McGrath and Will Ritchie-Moulin as well as a new marketing executive Evelyn Okukusie.”
