Welcome to the latest Princedale Partners Digital Moves Report, covering individuals who have moved to new leadership positions between Q4 2019 and Q1 2020.

Many of these appointments made across the digital and technology space were made after businesses started searches in Q3 of 2019 when there was a business confidence bounce. Whilst businesses in the hardest hit sectors are not making key hires currently due to the pandemic, there are still some sectors and businesses that are.

It will be interesting to see whether when things normalise post the coronavirus peak, companies make up for lost time with hires planned in H1 2020.

As always, if we can help your business, if you perhaps need to make a digital leadership hire on an interim basis, let me know and we’d be happy to support you where we can.
