As new office opens...
Morrison and Gray take new roles at expanding AM Bid
Andrew Morrison and David Gray
AM Bid, Scotland’s largest bid and tender specialist, has set the foundations for continued expansion with the appointment of David Gray as managing director.
Mr Gray, 38, joined the company in 2016 from EDF Energy and steps up from bid development director in a move which sees founder and outgoing MD Andrew Morrison assume the role of business development director.
AM Bid was established five years ago by Mr Morrison and the appointment comes as the business opens its first Scottish office in the new WeWork offices in George Street, Edinburgh.
“I’m delighted to have the opportunity to lead the business at an exciting time, as we build on the successes of our first five years,” said Mr Gray.
“I knew that Andrew had spotted a gap in the market when he set the business up and that there would be demand for our services.
“When I joined, we had four staff in total. I was determined to help us grow and become more established in our key markets, so it is very satisfying to now have a staff team of 10, a new office in Edinburgh and an established client base across a broad range of sectors.”
He added: “Our vision is to build trusted and long-lasting client relationships which deliver transformational change to the ways in which organisations bid and win new work.
“In the next five years I want to see AM Bid recognised as the UK’s leading bidding and tender specialist.”
Mr Morrison said: “David has strong leadership qualities and has consistently developed his career over the past 14 years to get to this point.”
Looking ahead to his new role, he is focused on continuing the progress which has seen AM Bid increase turnover to nearly £1 million since formation.
“It has been an exciting journey to get to this point. It has also been a lot of hard work and I have had considerable help along the way. We have a great staff team and clients who keep coming back to us for winning bids.”
