Matthew Ellis, Executive Director
Matthew has served as a Non-Executive Director at Consol Partners since the companies’ inception in 2008.
He has extensive knowledge of the recruitment sector gained from over 14 years’ experience across multiple markets in both the public and private sectors. Matthew was previously the Co-Founder and CEO of Kellis Group, where he helped implement the market leading managed solution in the education sector. Kellis Group was acquired by Synarbor Plc (formerly Public Recruitment Group Plc) in September 2005 after trading for little over two years, with the company producing a turnover in excess of £16 million.
Once Kellis was acquired, Matthew was appointed to the Board of Synarbor as Operations Director and subsequently promoted to Chief Operating Officer in 2007. Matthew’s key skills lie within the operations, management and strategic development and growth of a recruitment business. This has enabled each company he has worked with to significantly reduce initial capital outlay and stream line operating costs.
A big family man and also an Arsenal supporter, Matthew spends his weekends trying to lower his handicap at golf in addition to managing a local football side.
