AMPlex Launches As A New Company - August 2013

AMPlex has launched. The decision to start the consultancy was taken in order to bring to businesses across the UK and Europe the experience and skills of its 2 directors Tony and Kay McCandless.


Both have diverse skillsets grown through many years working within leading UK and global businesses and the public sector.


In a recent talk the founding director - Tony McCandless stated "I have been fortunate to work with some incredible companies and people but I felt the time was right to take what I have learned and work with a wider group of companies.


My boyhood hero was John Harvey-Jones who had an amazing talent for helping companies make the change they needed. I want to be able to do the same and see AMPlex as the perfect vehicle to achieve that goal".
