New director brought in to head up Scottish team

Leading independent consultancy IMPOWER Consulting is stepping up its presence in Scotland, after recent wins at the City of Edinburgh and North Ayrshire Councils, and has brought in experienced local government specialist David Welsh to head up its Scottish team.

The company’s continued growth and specialism in the area of local government consultancy, particularly in corporate and service efficiency, outsourcing and divestment, adult social care, and children’s services has led to a number of significant business wins, resulting in business expansion.

David is returning to IMPOWER for a second stint, following three years with Turner & Townsend where he developed and led several business transformation programmes at Doncaster, Nottingham City, the Scottish Borders and Renfrewshire Councils.

David said, “I’m delighted to be back at IMPOWER. My decision to return was very much based on the company’s values, including its long-standing commitment to making public services fairer, more sustainable and more accessible.”

IMPOWER chief executive, Martin Cresswell, said of the appointment, “I am very pleased that David has decided to rejoin IMPOWER. We are dedicated to expanding our business by recruiting more people with a passion and commitment for improving public services.”
