Washington, DC, October 10, 2016–APMP, the only association for the bid and proposal industry announced today that it has hired Tony Round to be its new Manager of Corporate Growth. Mr. Round is based in the United Kingdom (UK) and will work with APMP staff in the US to help grow corporate and individual membership.

In just six years, APMP’s UK chapter has grown from 350 members to more than 1,700 — a 385 percent increase in membership Mr. Round will partner with Peter Lobl, APMP UK’s member chair, to build a strategy for increasing individual and corporate membership.

“When we analyzed our UK growth, it became obvious that a UK based staff person was needed and we are opening an office in the UK to address the pent-up demand,” said Rick Harris, Executive Director, APMP. “Tony will help establish a more significant APMP UK footprint and contribute to the growth of APMP’s largest chapter.”

Mr. Round brings broad business and public sector experience with direct links to Government, the CBI, IOD, FSB and the British Chambers of Commerce to APMP. He joins APMP from the UK's leading foster care charity where he served as a Head of Fundraising and was directly responsible for income generation across all funding streams. His primary focus was on corporate, statutory and public sector bids to local and national government, business and the Big Lottery. Over 12-years in the charity/not for profit sector Mr. Round raised an average of more than £1m a year for a number of high-profile causes including Junior Achievement/Young Enterprise, YMCA and The Prince's Trust.

“Tony will help us get in front of some of the UK’s leading corporations to sell APMP’s message and memberships,” said APMP CEO Nic Adams. “He has experience and an impressive network of contacts to help take APMP to a new level in the UK and Europe.

Mr. Adams was instrumental in bringing an international staff person to the UK. He has worked with the APMP Board of Directors for nearly three years to establish the APMP Manager of Corporate Growth UK position.

Mr. Round starts with APMP on October 31, 2016.
