Our Team

Sandy Wilson – Chief Executive

Sandy Wilson is the founder and Chief Executive of FTS Consulting Ltd.

Sandy started her career over 30 years ago with Rank Xerox where she was involved in Personnel on a generalist basis. She went on to work in merchant banking and then specialised in recruitment with a Cambridge consultancy. Following the birth of her two children she entered education and eventually became the Head of Computer Studies Department which involved setting up a business unit, training and recruiting teachers, implementing protocols, designing and delivering programmes for all ages encompassing a wide range of skill needs.

This Department became the main source of income for the College. She was then headhunted by Marconi to go back into industry where she set up a specialist unit and developed programmes for management.

In 1989 she set up her own consultancy. This has grown year on year, now having a substantial track record in both public and private sectors. Sandy has grown and developed the business to a level where turning into a limited company became the next obvious move and was completed in 1998. During the life of the company, Sandy has been directly involved in delivering many of the projects, primarily focusing on Executive Development, Performance Management and, more recently, Career Management with organisations such as Nokia, SGS Limited, Solcorp (a Division of EDS) and British Nuclear Fuels Ltd.

Sandy is a qualified teacher of Adults and a member of CIPD and a member of the Surrey University Coaching Faculty. She holds the Advanced Diploma in Coaching and Mentoring awarded by the much acclaimed Oxford School of Coaching and Mentoring. She is also an ‘Investors in People’ accredited Assessor and Advisor.
