Evolving the business
Seasoned practitioner becomes Hanya managing partner
Mr Gaffney replaces company founder Martin Ewart, who was recently appointed the chief executive of Hanya Partners parent company, Taranata Group.
Mr Gaffney joins from Cape Glen Advisory where he held the role of principal and led the company’s business development and delivery team. He has over 25 years’ experience in overseeing complex IT arrangements through the lifecycle of sourcing, selection, contracting, managing and exiting relationships.
The majority of Mr Gaffney’s career has been focused in the financial services sector but has also been seen him involved in leading public sector procurement projects. He is not new to Hanya Partners, having worked with the company as an associate on a consultancy basis since 2015. During this time, he was responsible for delivering significant projects in the UK, US and the Netherlands.
As managing partner, Mr Gaffney will be responsible for overseeing the existing client base and growing the business presence further.
Martin Ewart, chief executive of Taranata Group said: “This is the first step in building the next chapter of our consulting business. Sourcing and supplier management is a growing discipline, and Paul’s experience and market credibility are a great match for us as Hanya evolves under his leadership.”
Mr Gaffney said: “It is an exciting time for us as a business following the acquisition by Taranata Group last month and I relish the opportunity to build our presence more across both Edinburgh and London.”
