Hilary Neal has been promoted to Commercial Director at ACIEM, with responsibility for the surveying and procurement functions of the business.
The new role of Commercial Director has been created following last year’s MBO, when ACIEM reverted to being a privately owned company. The business plan that was put in place by the new management team shows ambitious expansion and diversification plans, with the intention to grow the commercial department to 10 members of staff within the next year.
Hilary originally joined the business in 2005 as a Senior Surveyor, moving on to become Commercial Manager before being promoted earlier this year to Commercial Director.
Speaking about her promotion, Hilary said, “It is a really exciting and challenging time for ACIEM, under new ownership and direction. I am looking forward to taking on that challenge, seeking new opportunities and providing the company with a robust commercial department, as well as providing support, governance and direction in all commercial aspects of the business.”
Hilary is involved in projects from the prequalification stage right through to individual and framework closeout, ensuring ACIEM has a multi-layered relationship with clients through all departments. In addition, she is responsible for commercial reporting requirements and contractual adherence through ACIEM’s Frameworks.
