Digital People Moves Report – Summer 2017

Since our last report in March, the hottest moves in the industry have been as exciting, unexpected and interesting as ever. Here is our summer report for Digital People Moves – appointments that have taken place across the wider marketplace in the last few months. It has been great to see such high levels of activity before we enter the quieter months of July and August.
