In an anticipated strategic move, xDesign has onboarded two seasoned professionals from BJSS. Grant Thomas, formerly a Board Director and Head of Consulting at BJSS, has been appointed as the Chief Commercial Officer (CCO). With his vast experience, including senior stints at giants like Barclaycard, Accenture, and Toyota, Thomas is primed to fortify xDesign’s commercial strides.
On the other hand, Susheel Dodeja, former Head of Presale and Public Sector at BJSS, with prior roles at BP Oil and Swiss Re, has been named the Director of Business Development.
Both Thomas and Dodeja have been instrumental at BJSS, significantly contributing to its impressive revenue surge to over £250m in less than a decade.
Euan Andrews, xDesign’s Founder and CEO, emphasized the importance of these appointments. Andrews stated, “With Grant and Susheel on board, we are poised to expand our industry presence. Their commitment to our award-winning, people-first culture only accentuates our vision.”
Grant Thomas, in his new role, will be pivotal in not only augmenting xDesign’s Business Development team but will also play a vital role in fortifying its Marketing and Client Partnership functions. Thomas remarked, “Joining xDesign at this juncture is a great opportunity to amplify a consultancy known for its quality, collaborative approach, and a culture that prioritizes its people and clients.”
Susheel Dodeja will harness his vast experience to elevate xDesign's presence in its current industries and spearhead its foray into new sectors. “The company’s impressive growth owes much to its core values - a robust company culture, employee wellbeing, and technical brilliance. I am eager to leverage my expertise, especially with Public Sector clients, to further xDesign’s impact in diverse sectors,” Dodeja stated.
As xDesign embarks on its ambitious growth trajectory, these strategic hires signify its commitment to excellence and innovation.
