The Knowledge Partnership was started back in 2004 by David Roberts and Louise Simpson, and is very well known for its rigorous approach to data insights, consulting and reputation auditing, being one of the very few consultancies to work exclusively in higher education. After 16 years of being independent, we now take a bigger step forward, having been acquired by THE, one of the biggest data insights and ranking organisations in the world. Together we are looking at new and exciting ways we can make more of data insights and reaching wider global audiences, through for example the new THE student panel.
In terms of structure, TKP will remain a separate entity, working under its own brand, with the same management structure as before. Louise Simpson continues as Managing Director of TKP and Sally Baily maintains her role as Head of Courses and Student Markets with David Roberts supporting business development and portfolio reviews. Meanwhile Mark Sudbury will continue to lead the World 100 & Reputation Division with Louise Simpson.
