Three years on and Empiric Partners is pleased to announce that we are strengthening our team through the appointment of Ian Cross as an Associate Partner. Ian joins us from Hampshire County Council and brings over three decades of experience in social care with senior positions in the public sector. EP is poised to launch its care homes initiative which is designed to focus the expertise and experience of our partners, in support of businesses at the sharp-end of the Corona Pandemic.
Ian will provide a significant impetus to the care homes initiative and assist EP with tailoring our service to the very specific needs of this sector, recognising the urgency generated by the Pandemic. We are also clear that he will complement the wider skills on offer within EP and help to extend the knowledge base to benefit existing and future clients in the public and private sector.
EP grew out of 5 like-minded individuals with a desire to support SME’s and other organisations seeking guidance on the best way to deliver a profitable and compliant business. For our part we strive to practice what we preach and have recently secured accreditation for our cyber security.
Equally I am pleased to say that EP has grown its revenue year-on-year and won a place on 4 frameworks sponsored by Universities and Local Government to support SME’s across a range of sectors. Its been fun over the last three years but with Covid-19 and a potential economic downturn we are not complacent.
Ian’s experience in the social care sector is unrivalled, his integrity and commitment to providing a professional service is without question, along with his record on delivering business improvement, he will be a great addition to the Partnership. Watch this space for some further announcements!
