Double First appoints new Director

Jeff Elliott, Group MD, is pleased to announce the appointment of Kim Hollamby as Director of Double First Ltd.

Kim joins the company after successfully creating a 70-person technology department for IPC Media, a London-based division of the $40bn Time Warner group.

'The team was responsible for building and supporting a major software platform as well as providing end-to-end customer solutions from server infrastructure to data management and graphic design,' said Kim.

Kim's experience also includes international business analysis, project management, consultancy and event facilitation.

The Time is Right

'The time is absolutely right,' said Jeff. 'Given Double First's 21 year history, and the creation of the most successful MIS for Independent Schools, Kim has the perfect set of skills and knowledge to take company forward. The Board is very excited with his appointment.'

'I've been following the excellent progress of Engage since its launch,' said Kim. 'I am really pleased to join Double First's great team in Yeovil. The company's obvious investment in people and product was my motive for moving and I am really looking forward to playing an active part in taking Engage and our other software products, including our supporting services, to the next level.'

IPC Media

At IPC Media, Kim was the Digital Development Director responsible for its core web technology team and additionally served on the board of the company's specialist interest division, Country & Leisure Media (now named Inspire). Kim worked with many of the brand teams responsible for the 80 magazines and 50 websites at IPC including Country Life, Horse and Hound, Decanter, Yachting World, Golf Monthly, Homes and Gardens, and Women and Home.

Kim believes his experience with both large and small customer-facing organisations will be invaluable in establishing the company even more firmly in its dominant position with Independent Schools, both in the UK and Internationally.

Outside the Office

Kim's interests include boating, diving, music, theatre lighting, flying, travel, technology, cooking and sport.
