David Grinham becomes Chairman of PEOPLECERT UK

June 2014 – PEOPLECERT’s Board of Directors ( has today announced the appointment of David Grinham as Chairman of PEOPLECERT UK. This comes just two weeks after his appointment as Senior Director of PEOPLECERT, responsible for the organisation’s A-Z certification services division.

PEOPLECERT UK was recently formed to accommodate the needs of the local market, by bringing together its A to Z certification services that cover the full exam development and administration cycle, with its established presence in the ITIL and PPM market. David’s role will be to focus on governance and business growth strategy within the UK.

“The UK market is of strategic importance to us and by investing in our local presence we will be able to support our partners even better. David’s track record of business development and growth and his local know-how, will contribute to helping PEOPLECERT reach its goals in this fast changing and unpredictable environment”, says Byron Nicolaides, PEOPLECERT’s Chairman & CEO.  

“In less than four years since its entry into the ITSM industry, PEOPLECERT has transformed what was previously a somewhat static market. Through the introduction of innovative services, high end technology and marketing tools, PEOPLECERT is rapidly becoming a strategic partner that supports training organisations’ business growth, rather than simply being an Examination Institute. As the market has become more service centric, this has provided major benefits to end users and to organisations seeking partners that can drive them to the future by adding value to their business. I look forward to further enhancing this strategy and adapting it to meet local UK market needs This is an exciting time to be part of PEOPLECERT”, says David Grinham, who brings deep international business experience, with his most recent role being that of Vice President and GM for the EMEA Region at Prometric.
