Professional Services Head joins Achiever

Sword Achiever : 30 July, 2008  (Company News)
New hire at Achiever Business Solutions to head up division responsible for training and consultancy for Governance, Risk and Compliance
Simon Benson has been appointed as Head of Professional Services by Europe's leading GRC (Governance Risk and Compliance) technology company Achiever Business Solutions. He joins from NYK Logistics Megacarrier, a global player in the shipping and distribution sector, where as Environmental, Safety, Security and Business Continuity Manager he was responsible for compliance management across Europe.

Prior to this role, Benson was involved in many areas of NYK's compliance strategy. This ranged from conducting internal & external audits for ISO14001 and preparing business continuity plans to implementing a Health & Safety Management system and developing a European Intranet.

In his new role, Benson will mastermind Achiever's consultancy, implementation, training and support operations and in addition head up product and technical management of the company's widely acclaimed AchieverPlus range of GRC solutions.

AchieverPlus provides a single point of access for GRC management for all areas of risk management, compliance management and regulatory affairs, including quality, health and safety, financial, IT security and environmental management, across the enterprise. Combining power and flexibility, with Microsoft's .NET technology, AchieverPlus provides a unique management gateway that can easily be embedded into an organization's existing processes without disrupting working practices. The system unifies all the organization's disparate standards, policies and resources across any number of sites and locations.

Multiple areas of compliance can be included such as regulatory, legislative and best practice, encompassing many industry standards. Specific solutions for the most highly regulated business areas include: Sarbanes Oxley, Life Sciences (FDA 21 CFR Part 11), ISO 9001, ISO 14001 / 18001 and more.

Commenting upon Benson's appointment Robert Dent, CEO of Achiever Business Solutions noted, 'Coming from the corporate side, Simon has an invaluable insight and we expect that he will greatly enhance our communication with existing customers and feed this input back into the development cycle. I am delighted to welcome him aboard.'

For his part, Benson welcomed Dent's comments adding, 'In global distribution, you need to effect the highest compliance standards across international boundaries and this is the most testing environment for GRC management systems. From an operational perspective at NYK, I was responsible for the implementation of AchieverPlus as NYK's European GRC solution and I am delighted to have the opportunity to champion their products in this new role.'
