Bell has been working for Sector on a consultancy basis for around two months and has now been appointed to Sector’s board as a director.
The consultancy says he will work closely with Sector managing director Andrew Bell on a range of core functions.
Hampson says, ‘This appointment comes at an important time in our progression with a number of new initiatives under way. It is essential that we continually develop our infrastructure and expertise to support these developments and Patrick will take a central role in this.’
Bell left Writtle Holdings in 2009 and since then he has worked to set up a charitable trust dealing with educational reform and worked with marketing groups in an advisory role.
