Strategi for success sees more jobs, growth and a new office


An ambitious professional services company has added new senior staff and rebranded to reflect the wider range of services on offer.

Entrepreneur and people management expert Wendy Dean has overseen rapid growth since founding Strategi-hr just 16 months ago.

Moving forward, the company will be branded as the Strategi Solutions Group, while three executive level appointments have broadened the services on offer and given the team the capacity to work across the whole of the UK.

The company has also moved to new offices at The White House, The Mount, Etruria Road, Basford, Newcastle-under-Lyme, where it has room for further growth.

Lyn Rowe joins the eight-strong team as Sales and Marketing Director following a highly successful career at Staffordshire Sentinel Newspapers. Lyn is joined at Strategi Solutions Group by Rob Fisher and Paul Weaver.

Wendy Dean said: “We are thrilled to add Lyn, Rob and Paul to our expanding business and they join Director of Learning and Development, Penny Whitelock, and myself on the Strategi Solutions senior leadership team.

“My own role has been in senior HR and people management, working at Director level to support strategic development and to help companies to develop with the support of their staff.

“It is clear that many businesses need support across a range of strategic professional services and our intention is to provide a holistic service encompassing skills including culture change, training and development, sales and marketing, recruitment and design.”
