BHP Consulting has grown its team with the appointment of two new consultants Simon Dixon and Steve Kerridge, who joined the firm earlier this year.

The two join a team of four consultants and support staff based across offices in Leeds, Cleckheaton, Sheffield, Chesterfield, and York.

BHP Consulting, which is a division of BHP Chartered Accountants, helps businesses of all sizes from across the region identify and deliver their growth potential.

Head of consulting Mark Roberts says: “Simon Dixon has 20 years’ experience working in industry on supply chain and operations issues. He began his career on Asda’s logistics graduate scheme, where he opened new distribution centres, worked on performance improvement projects and latterly managed a high throughput distribution centre. He is the former head of PwC’s logistics consulting practice, where he led and worked on performance improvement projects with Blue Chip clients across Europe.”

Mark adds: “Steve Kerridge also brings a wealth of experience to the team. He has a mechanical engineering degree from the University of Sheffield, and a career that spans the UK, Europe and Australasia at both SME and multinational organisations, with a particular emphasis towards technology based businesses. With previous roles in procurement, logistics, treasury management, consulting, private equity and technology, he has a strong track record for building value and has been CEO of two software companies, growing one of these from an early stage venture with a team of six into a successful and profitable business with 60 staff.

Partner at BHP Consulting David Mitchell says: “These collaborations have allowed us to expand our offering across a wide range of industries and complement our existing team and their collective experience. We already offer owners of expanding businesses a full range of consulting services, and Simon and Steve’s involvement has added to the breadth of knowledge and advice we can provide.”
