OUR PEOPLE

Allen + Clarke has two majority shareholders, Matthew Allen and Paul Houliston, who are also Directors of the company. The company also has six minority owners who all work in the business: Anna Gribble, Ned Hardie-Boys, Rob Smith, Jason Carpenter, Marnie Carter and Jacqui Haggland.

Our team members come with a broad range of backgrounds, experience and expertise - but all share a common purpose: to make a difference in their chosen professions.

Our board comprises an Independent Director, our two Allen + Clarke Directors and two elected minority shareholder representatives. They meet regularly to set and review the strategic direction of the firm, maintain corporate management related policies and to make decisions on major company issues.

Our corporate support team have a wealth of professional knowledge. They draw on specialised knowledge, best practices, and technology to provide excellent support to both internal and external customers.

Our team provides comprehensive, efficient, transparent, effective and independent secretariat, governance and programme services. We have extensive experience supporting public and private organisations to effectively connect the dots. We do everything you need when you need it, and nothing you don't.

Our evaluation services are provided by a team of specialists, backed up by our wider team of policy professioanls and supplemented by external partners.

We pride ourselves on being experts at all stages of the policy cycle - we employ evaluators, reviewers, project managers and public policy practitioners who are highly experienced in research and problem definition; design and implementation of policy, regulation and programmes; and review and evaluation.
