BOSTON, May 10, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Pioneer Consulting is pleased to announce that, following three years as Director of Submarine Networks, Keith Schofield has become a co-managing partner, along with existing managing partners Howard Kidorf and Julian Rawle. Keith will continue with his oversight of the submarine project implementation and engineering business.

Since joining Pioneer, Keith has provided consultancy support for organizations considering entering the market for marine services, carriers seeking to expand their international cable networks and has supplied project development expertise to several companies wanting to invest in submarine networks. Keith leads Pioneer's submarine network consulting activities in project development, feasibility and implementation.

"For over three years Keith has been an integral part of the company. He has been instrumental in the success of the Main One submarine cable system as its lead project manager," commented Howard Kidorf, fellow managing partner and lead systems engineer for the cable system.

At the current SubOptic 2010 Conference Keith Schofield expressed his enthusiasm for Pioneer and servicing the needs of its clients: "It's my aim to ensure Pioneer retains and grows its internationally respected position as a company that is first for service, quality, and value-added when it comes to submarine network and implementation consulting. Pioneer will continue to grow as it attracts the best of the industry to work both in the company, and as associates." "We are delighted that Keith has chosen to make this long-term commitment to Pioneer," stated Julian Rawle, Pioneer's managing partner. "Retaining his skills as an experienced commercial development director and general manager of highly complex telecommunications infrastructure projects creates certainty for us and for our clients. Pioneer will continue to deliver major infrastructure projects on time, to specification, and within budget."
