Defence industry expert joins MoD reorganisation team.

MANAGEMENT consultancy CMC Partnership has appointed a leading defence industry project expert to its management board after being chosen to play an increasing role in the reorganisation of Ministry of Defence working practices.

Monmouth-based CMC is a partner in an alliance of top consultancies being used by the MoD to help deliver strategic changes in its operations to better serve the 21st-century demands on Britain's military.

CMC is providing IT and IS methodology, policy and standards support to the MoD under a major new contract awarded to the SCS ICS Alliance.

The company has also reached agreement with MoD contract holder Detica, a global information intelligence specialist, to deliver business management and support services to the Ministry.

CMC was named as the fastest-growing firm in the financial and business services sector in Wales in the Fast Growth 50 Awards 2008.

With defence sector contracts playing a significant role in the company's business development, it has been joined by Richard Carter, who has a 12-year record of launching, growing and delivering successful high-tech products and businesses.

A chartered engineer with high-level expertise in systems engineering and organisational growth and development, Mr Carter, who lives near Ross-on-Wye, played a key role in the team that provided the 360-degree situation awareness surveillance systems for British Army Mastiff vehicles in Iraq and Afghanistan.

A former director at defence and aerospace firm Ultra Electronics and a project manager with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, his career also included running development studios for Eidos, the software gaming house which gave the world Lara Croft - Tomb Raider.

Mr Carter is responsible for managing contracts and growing CMC's business with the defence sector. The company already has an established working relationship with the Defence Science & Technology Laboratory.

He said: "The pace of change within the Ministry of Defence is accelerating and CMC will be required to provide timely and effective specialist support in change, programme and project management.

"Helping the MoD reshape itself to better deliver what is required in our increasingly complex and security focused world is a vital role and I am very pleased to be able to link my experience with CMC's in this field."

CMC director Rhiannon Cooke said: "Richard has had a highly successful career in the defence, IT and banking worlds, including the security and aerospace sectors and we are delighted he has chosen to join our team at this exciting time."

The rapid expansion of CMC is based on its success in helping organisations manage large-scale change, involving people, processes and technology.
