Human, the Manchester software development consultancy, has appointed Chris Ashley as its Head of Engagement.

The new role is intended to develop relationships with potential clients and strategic partners. Ashley will work closely with the Director of Strategy & Engagement to build Human's profile and business development capability.

Ashley, who was previously team manager at The Orchard Agency, said: "I found Human's approach to business irresistible - agile, open-source, pro-integration, helping to improve people’s lives.

"Human combines strategic insight with strong software development capabilities. This powerful mix results in an impressive and loyal client base. Manchester is increasingly recognised as a digital hub on the world stage and I'm excited to be part of a business leading that charge."

Christopher Charlton, Director of Strategy & Engagement added: "Chris has a deep understanding of the technical forces changing the world around us and experience addressing the strategic challenges faced by businesses we know can benefit from our brand of digital transformation.

"It's exciting to welcome someone with both human empathy and commercial savvy to this critical new role. We wish him every success."
