Ioannou comments: “I joined MMP in 2013 and the past year has seen the most significant growth of Marquis Media Partners yet, with the recruitment of three new partners plus the completion of several major strategic projects for international media organisations including: Middle East Broadcasting Center (MBC Group) and Ethiopia Broadcasting Corporation (EBC). As managing partner, I will work with our team to ensure that as we grow, our resources and expertise are deployed to the maximum effect. MMP will be focused on fulfilling our customers’ needs for the efficient delivery of strategic projects. We will work hard to really deliver benefits to our media client base, particularly in new markets.
“In future we will be dedicated to working with broadcasters and companies primarily or partly in the media space to help them drive successful transformational change programmes,” continues Ioannou. “We shall advise on the management of technical development and tackle change including work space issues and the training and engagement of people, in order to realise successful transformational change programmes within fast-paced environments.
“Our recently announced partnership with Salford University is an example of how we can create tailor-made packages of skills training and change consultancy,” explains Ioannou. “We will also be looking at developing further partnerships to offer an extended range of solutions. This will reinforce MMP’s unique proposition to help media organisations become more agile, in order to thrive and grow regardless of what the future holds.”
