In his role as head of operational marketing, Paul will define and execute a ten

services sectors such as law, travel and leisure, as well as expanding the

Paul joins Qedis with over 20 years' marketing and communications experience and has
held senior positions at companies in a variety of service sectors, including legal
and finance. He has particular expertise in strategic branding and market
positioning, growing small to medium-sized companies to attract investment and
future commercial acquisition, as well as defining and delivering global
communications strategies.

Paul will report directly to Paramjit Uppal, managing director of Qedis. Uppal
"These are exciting times for everyone at Qedis. Over the past five years we have
seen a huge growth in our business, winning clients in all our key sectors while
continuing to build long term relationships with existing clients. We have now
reached a critical point where we can start to raise our profile by referencing the
real successes we have achieved in the marketplace.

"Qedis has established a unique culture and way of working both within the business
and through the way we work with our clients, and Paul's appointment is an important
step in sharing more broadly this 'Qedis Way' and driving growth. His professional
expertise and knowledge will help play an integral role in ensuring the continued
success of the business."

"Over the last five years Qedis has developed an impressive portfolio of high
profile clients and a proven track record working with some of the UK's most
influential CIOs and IT directors, providing the ideal platform to expand the
consultancy," said Paul J Westerman. "However, in order to achieve its ambitious
growth plans Qedis must set in place a marketing strategy that can really take the
company to the next level and positions the consultancy as a viable alternative to
its 'big four' competitors."
