Boutique HR consultancy Lace Partners has announced that Liz Sanders will join the firm from consulting giant Accenture.
Sanders will be responsible for extending the London-based company’s client base, as well as expanding its offerings in HR transformation, human capital advisory, and change management.
In joining Lace after a 15-year career at Accenture, Sanders follows a similar path to Aaron Albury and Cathy Acratopulo, the founders of the group.
Both Albury and Acratopulo held previous positions at large consulting firms such as Accenture and Deloitte, before deciding to provide a “fundamentally different” contribution to the sector through their own venture.
Albury said: “2021 may have started with challenges and in the UK a national lockdown, but from what we are hearing from clients and the HR profession in general, there is optimism that the year will indeed see positivity and growth return quickly.
“That is why we have brought Liz on board. She has a wealth of knowledge helping many globally FTSE 250 businesses navigate their path to reinvent their HR capabilities, bring new employee experiences and digital transformations.”
Sanders’ most recent role saw her act as managing director and head of Accenture’s digital HR and workforce experience practice.
However, the opportunity to be “part of an agile boutique consultancy” with high growth prospects was a challenge she simply “could not pass up on”.
