Douglas McPherson, Director
Telephone: 07786 540191
Shoe size: 11
Doug has worked in sales and marketing within the professional services sector since 1992 in roles that include Head of Sales at Intellectual Property Publishing and Commercial Director for The Lloyd's Marine Intelligence Unit. Doug brings a wealth of commercial business development and account management expertise as well as a successful track record in designing and launching 'products' for the legal and insurance markets.
Doug has written 2 books - The Visible Lawyer and Package, Position, Profit - for the Ark Group which focus specifically on what the legal sector need to do in order to sell themselves more effectively in the 21st Century.
Doug shares Bernard's appreciation of hard work and finding the right answer for any business development quesiton, balancing it (sort of!) with an unhealthy obsession with obscure soul music. Doug wears size 11s but argues that makes him half an inch better!
Anne Toler, HR Associate
Shoe size: 5
Anne is an HR business consultant with experience of both strategic and generalist HR approaches. She worked for a number of years in various HR functions (recruitment, learning & development and more specialist roles) at senior levels in Boots - both UK and international divisions.
She set up her business HR Associates in 2003; since then she has worked on many varied assignments in public and private sectors, large corporations and professional firms. Projects range from supporting the set-up of good HR practice in smaller organisations to designing and running management development programmes.
Her interests include Egyptian belly-dancing and walking her retired racing greyhound (not at the same time though).
Claire McPherson, Office Manager
Shoe size: 7
Claire has re-joined Tenandahalf as our new Office Manager where her hyper-organised approach, her incredible eye for detail and her, shall we say, somewhat 'careful' fiscal nature made her a shoe-in to look after the administrative side of the business.
