Today Wonkhe ltd. welcomes two new Directors and members of the Board. Thomas Veit (Director of External Relations, University of Leicester) and Jamie O’Connell (Product Director, Hobsons) join the company from October 2014.
Thomas Veit is an experienced communications and marketing professional with extensive experience working for large multi-national brands and in higher education, both in the UK and internationally.
On his appointment, Thomas said “I am delighted to join Wonkhe at this exciting time. I have watched Wonkhe develop over the last few years and am very impressed with the progress that has been made. The next few months will bring some further and exciting changes. I am looking forward to being able to contribute to its success and growth over the coming years.”
As one of the founders of The Student Room, Jamie O’Connell has developed products and created opportunities for education providers, government and students.
Jamie said “With the rate of change going on in higher education there is a real need for an independent and authoritative source of information to aid with decision making. Wonkhe is the voice of the sector and I’m very pleased to be part of the team supporting its growth.”
Mark Leach, Wonkhe’s Director said “We are thrilled to welcome Thomas and Jamie at this critical time. Wonkhe has recently embarked on an ambitious journey of change and growth that will deliver exciting new opportunities for our community in higher education.”
Wonkhe’s high-profile Board plays an essential role in shaping the organisation’s future and supporting current behind-the-scenes developments.
Wonkhe will relaunch later in 2014.
