He is also a Fellow of The Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development, and has held various offices within the Institute.

In his early career Bill worked in management in the retail and telecommunications fields, and subsequently in human resource management in the public sector and utilities.

In his mid career he worked in human resources consultancy for KPMG and then joined Moores Rowland where he established a human resources consulting practice. In 1990 he led a management buyout of this function and renamed it CEDAR International. Under his guidance CEDAR grew to become one of the UK’s leading independent HR consulting practices, with forty-five staff at eight offices throughout the UK and strong global links.

During the period 2002 to 2006 Bill delivered programmes on Diversity, Multi-Cultural Teamwork and International Communications (2004-2006) at The University of Bremen and The University of Applied Sciences (The Hochschule) in Bremen, Germany.

Bill served on Board of CEDAR International from 1989 until 2006. In October 2008 Bill set up Pitcher Solutions Ltd, focusing on delivering quality executive coaching and team programmes to both public and private sector, and HR advisory work including restructuring.

Bill has worked in many countries on consultancy assignments including Spain, France, Germany, The Netherlands, West Africa and The USA. He has advised large employers including UBS, Citibank, British Airways, Quilter Goodison and many other organisations.

Bill’s coaching clients have included senior executives from such organisations as HSBC and NBC Universal, both individuals and teams.

In addition to his career counselling, coaching and HR advisory services, Bill is now a part time actor on stage, screen and corporate videos.

Ray also has extensive experience working with international clients based outside of the UK from different cultural backgrounds including Europe, India, North Africa, Central Africa and the Middle East.

He combines his commercial experience and understanding of the psychology of individuals and teams to help create action plans that have “buy in” and are sustainable for his clients and their organisations. He supports existing, and emerging, executives to become more effective leaders able to develop teams and organisations to deliver results. His international experience allows him to coach across borders and offer support to clients working in today’s multi-cultural business environment.
