Senior Management Team in place for AM Bid

Posted: 1st February 2019

AM Bid, Scotland’s largest bid and tender specialist, has announced two new appointments to its Senior Management Team. The award-winning business is primed to take the next step in its scale-up journey, having seen a sustained increase in demand for its services.

Andrew Loughlin CF APMP joined from Babcock International as Head of Bids, having focused solely on bidding in the last 7 years of his 15 year career within the engineering sector, while Alasdair Oliphant takes up the role of Head of Operations, arriving from the City of Edinburgh Council where he was responsible for Quality Assurance.

Both commented that their roles would help bring greater structure to bid planning and management, and create a separate, dedicated focus on operational process and logistics, allowing Directors the necessary capacity to grow the business through bid development activities.

With extensive experience of developing winning bids for contracts covering a broad range of services, AM Bid consistently achieves market leading 80%+ win rates. The company is now on track to make £1m turnover in 2019 (with no investment or debt) – something that less than 0.6% of new businesses achieve within their first five years.
