Ted joined MPI in 1984 as a recruitment consultant and during the following years recruited for companies such as Mercury Communications, the BBC, Cray Communications and British Aerospace. Dedicated to the company from the beginning he was even known to ride his bike round London to make sure paperwork was delivered to clients and candidates on time. Ted was promoted to Personnel Manager in 1994 and then appointed to the board in 1999 taking more responsibility for company policies and employment law issues. He then became managing director of MPI Limited and MPI Aviation Limited in 2004 taking overall responsibility for all MPI companies as a result. After several successful years of growing the company Ted decided in 2018 to move into the position of chairman and continue MPI's legacy of encouraging new talent and promotion from within by creating the new management director team.
