Former MP joins CPMS board

Ben Howlett has joined the board of multi-disciplinary management specialist CPMS as a non-executive director to work closely with the advisory board in a consulting capacity.

The former MP for Bath is no stranger to consultancy. Prior to taking a role in Parliament, he worked alongside the wider public sector and the NHS to provide consultancy support and assisted the Transport Policy team at the Conservative Party research department.

Ben is the managing director of both Dorson West, a publishing company, and policy institute Public Policy Projects, an organisation offering practical analysis and development in public policy reform, roles he will continue whilst being a non-executive director at CPMS.

Of his new appointment, Ben said: “I am tremendously excited to join CPMS as a non-executive director. CPMS is a successful SME with a proven track record of delivering high quality project management solutions to the UK rail sector. It also boasts over 50 per cent women employees and no gender pay gap and therefore has an extraordinary story to tell the rest of the sector.

“As the first male MP on the UK Parliament’s Women and Equalities Select Committee, diversity is very important to me and I am very much looking forward to working with such a dynamic and exciting team for many years to come.”
