UK – Renovo, The Outplacement Specialists announced today that Luke Mersey has joined the firm as Regional Director, London & South East. Luke joins from LHH Penna where he was a Client Partner responsible for sales and business development in the London & City region with a particular focus on Financial Services.
Luke’s appointment comes on the back of a record year for Renovo in which sales of the Company’s innovative outplacement service increased by over 52%. The firm credits the success to the growing popularity of its remote delivery outplacement model which has delivered outstanding results – helping thousands of people transition back to work faster than more traditional outplacement methods. Luke comments “I am delighted to be joining Renovo at such an exciting time in the Company’s development. It is a great team here and the enviable position Renovo holds in the market is testament to the quality of that team and the outstanding work they have done over the last few years. Renovo offers a fresh approach to outplacement in a market that has remained unchallenged for many years. My experience tells me that, today, organisations want the highest quality of support for their employees in transition but they also need to see real value for money. They want more transparency on the support that is being provided and they want to be able to measure the results of that investment in outplacement support. Renovo is ideally placed to meet these changing needs of the outplacement market”
Chris Parker, Managing Director of Renovo said “Luke’s experience and industry knowledge will prove invaluable as we continue to drive further growth in 2017. Last year was a very strong year for us, fuelled by accelerating demand for our remote delivery outplacement programmes. More and more organisations every day see the impact of our innovative approach– delivering the very best contemporary, practical and actionable job search advice and guidance that delivers results for their departing employees. We have grown our commercial team significantly in the last 12 months and the fact that we continue to attract talent of Luke’s quality is testament to the size of the opportunity that lies ahead for us.”
