Scottish business consultancy to the tech sector Consenna has appointed Trevor Evans as its new MD.

With an accomplished and renowned career in business IT, Evans has operated at director level for the past 15 years, during which time he has held positions with HP and more recently Apple.

Specialising in change management, grasping emerging opportunities and innovation-led growth, his experience has seen him operate within the UK market and overseas, where he has engaged with senior executives at a multitude of global IT organisations.

His appointment sees former MD and founder, Douglas Jeffrey, assume the role of Chairman.

“In an increasingly competitive market, both goals and resources are stretched further and further,” said Evans.

“I’ve walked in those shoes, know the market, the key players within it, and this equips me to demonstrate how Consenna can help amplify and maximise their sales and marketing strategies.”

Established since 2009, Consenna provides applications, tech solutions and professional services to global businesses.

Amongst its clients are HP, Lenovo, Kodak, Microsoft and BT.

Founder Douglas Jeffrey has become chairman since Evans’ appointment.

“I worked closely with Trevor whilst at HP and have witnessed his enviable skillset and dynamic leadership first-hand,” said Jeffrey.

“His ability to consistently deliver impressive results, coupled with his consummate understanding of the customers we’re seeking to work with, will serve Consenna well as we look for step change growth in the coming few years. I am delighted to have him lead us into this exciting period of expansion.”

Whilst Consenna is based in Scotland, the firm said Evans will split his time between his home in England’s M4 technology corridor, the company’s Scottish HQ and with customers.

“My primary focus will be to action my vitality, creativity and battle-hardened ethos, to ensure Consenna is the single most compelling answer for business growth – and of course have some fun along the way!” said Evans.
