David Palzeaird is now the firm’s Principal Consultant for CBO’s business analysis arm, while Kate Harbour has been promoted to Senior Consultant.

‘David is a highly-qualified, respected and extremely capable expert within our team at CBO and is the perfect person to take on the role of Principal Consultant for our business analysis capabilities, building on his extensive experience and knowledge’ said director, Ed Mason-Smith.

‘In his new role, David will not only be CBO’s subject matter expert for our business analysis capabilities, but will also be further developing our approach and ability to deliver these capabilities for our clients.​’

Kate joined the firm in March 2021 with a diverse professional background and a wealth of experience in organisational behaviour and change, stakeholder engagement, business analysis and project management.

‘Kate has done a fantastic job successfully delivering a number of key projects across both the private and public sector. Feedback on Kate’s work is invariably positive with clients asking for Kate’s support in helping them deliver their most challenging projects’ said director, Dominic Ash.

‘We’re delighted to have promoted Kate to a Senior Consultant role, where we know she’ll continue to excel as an ambassador for CBO, enriching our change management offering and working collaboratively alongside our clients in transforming their organisations.’
