Tess has also held senior positions in the field of health sector private public partnerships. Tess is a qualified mediator; holding the National Certificate in Workplace Mediation.
“I am delighted and privileged to have been appointed to this post” said Tess. “The values that CI Projects advocates are truly embodied in its culture and in the behaviour and work of its personnel. Striving to deliver added value for clients and positively impacting their ways of working is the focus of CIP’s ambition and this is an approach I fully espouse. It is a very exciting time in the life of the company and my wish is to contribute as much as possible to its development, working with the team to take the business to its next phase of success and beyond.”
