A word from our CEO

Geoffrey Willies graduated from Durham University before qualifying as a Chartered Accountant in 1969 with Ernest & Whinney (now EY) in Manchester, England. He then worked as business analyst in a London bank on some of the first implementations of manual processes to main frame computer installations. The management consultancy career began with Deloitte and subsequently KPMG working in Western Europe, Middle East and North Africa as a government advisor and consultant. Interim management roles were in UK, France, Italy and USA.

Charles Marcus began in 1984 after a direct approach from a British Government Office, a global NGO and a UN body led to a series of assignments needing a dedicated team.

In the 1990s Charles Marcus pioneered the use of clerical staff under contract to replace permanent employees doing routine tasks in London offices. This use of employees, now known as BPO, had previously only been used for manual labour in construction and agricultural industries. The contract style of working became very popular with clients. Charles Marcus built a specialist company providing teams of staff in niche markets. The business was sold in 2001 to a multinational group who applied the concept as BPO to a far wider market.

Charles Marcus employs highly-skilled consultants as permanent employees working on a series of client assignments, all of which are out of scope of OPWR. All Charles Marcus employees have continuity of employment with full rights and benefits.
