A challenging workplace dialogue that gets results
A challenging workplace dialogue between the chief executive and chairman can often lead to the bigger picture being realised when making crucial decisions.
IT and project management consultancy PTS Consulting raised £8.7m of funding from BGF in October 2013.
PTS helps corporate companies with multi-territory IT projects. It specialises in relocations and data centres and the company has offices across the world. Chief executive Kevin Perrett formed the company in 1990, after a management buyout.
BGF’s funding in October 2013 helped expand and professionalise the company. As part of his expansion plans Kevin needed a chairman who would test him. BGF helped provide candidates through its talent network. Of all of them Robin Pinchbeck was the only candidate with no experience in the IT sector, having worked in the oil and gas sector for 40 years. However, Kevin admired Robin’s no nonsense approach in a role play situation at interview and knew he would be working with someone who was not afraid to disagree.
Here, in The Telegraph’s Two’s Company series, Kevin and Robin talk through how they work together – where Kevin’s assumptions and ideas are regularly challenged by Robin in a positive manner:
