APM has appointed Debbie Dore to the new role of chief commercial officer as the association continues to strengthen its staff and build on past success to meet current and future challenges.
Debbie joined APM at the beginning of September having spent the last year working with world-wide publisher Oxford University Press.
There she led the redesign of the global customer service function as part of a global transformational change programme that impacted on all areas of the organisation.
During her time at the world’s largest university press she was responsible for defining future strategy, organisational and technology design, and gaining buy-in across the complex, global organisation.
With experience of significant commercial responsibility in both private equity and government funded roles, Debbie is familiar with membership organisations and the need to drive value for members whilst ensuring a sound commercial base for future investment.
Debbie’s career highlights range from a product launch that grew revenue from zero to £10m over three years to successfully devising and implementing a global sales strategy across 25 countries.
“Having personally led large global projects that significantly impact on people, technology and process I am passionate about the value of professional project management,” said Debbie.
“This is a really exciting time for APM and I’m looking forward to supporting the association in achieving its vision of a world where all projects succeed.”
