AM Bid Services is delighted to announce the appointment of Chris Blackburn in to the newly created post of Senior Bid Manager.

Chris joined the business on 4th September, in the last month of AM Bid Services’ third year, which has seen the company continue to grow exponentially, increasing the demand for additional in-house bid expertise.

Chris brings over 10 years of bidding experience to the role and joins the company from one of the UK’s largest full-service law firms, where he worked as Head of Bids for 5 years, trebling the company’s bid win rate in that time. Prior to this post, Chris spent 5 years in a bidding role with one of the UK’s largest technical recruitment companies.

Speaking about his new post, Chris said: “I am delighted to be joining AM Bid Services, one of the fastest growing bid consultancies in the UK. I have been impressed by the firm’s growth across multiple sectors and geographies, and the great feedback from clients. I’m looking forward to bringing my expertise in over 10 years of bidding to the role, and to playing my part in growing the firm in the North of England and the wider UK.”

David Gray, Bid Development Director of AM Bid Services, said “This is a key new role for the business and I am delighted to welcome Chris to the team. Attracting a highly experienced senior bid professional like Chris demonstrates our commitment to achieving our growth ambitions, whilst continuing to ensure our clients receive an extremely high quality service. As our first employee based in England, where 50% of our clients are based, Chris will increase our capacity south of the border and be a key contact for our clients in England.”

In joining the company, Chris’ focus will be on working in partnership with existing and new clients in England, and on further growing the business in the North West.
