Charterhouse Appoints New HR Director

Charterhouse Voice and Data PLC (CVD), the converged solutions integrator, today announces the appointment of experienced human resources professional Paula Melhado to the position of HR Director, and she joins the company Operating Board.

Paula joins Charterhouse after nearly five years at Yahoo! Europe where she was head of human resources for the UK and Scandinavia and 7 years at Northern Trust. She brings over 15 years of HR experience to a newly-created director-level position at CVD.

Mark Brooks-Wadham, CVD Managing Director, commented: “Paula brings a wealth of experience in human resources to CVD. This appointment demonstrates our commitment to further growth within our business and to strengthening the senior management team. Paula will be invaluable in helping us to meet our aggressive recruitment targets and to put career development and training programs to the forefront for all our employees. I look forward to working with Paula to take our business forward. ”

Paula Melhado added: “I am really thrilled to be joining Charterhouse at this exciting time. I look forward to the challenges within this role and to establishing a strong HR presence to support the organisation during its growth. The skills and experiences gained whilst at a fast-moving and dynamic business like Yahoo! will serve me well here as CVD is also an ambitious technology company. It is also refreshing to join a carbon neutral organisation. Being more environmentally-aware is now part of our company culture and I look forward to establishing clear values and a great culture at Charterhouse which, in turn, will allow us to attract the best talent.”
