hero image hero image

A who's-who of global business, see who's moved to what executive roles and companies, across the industry's business, marketing and technology functions.

Once a month, we share updates on the comings and goings of prominent business, marketing and technology leaders around the industry, as part of our Movers and Shakers update.

The first 12 weeks of 2022 has already seen a hive of activity at the executive level. Across business, marketing and technology functions, many have changed roles, companies and sectors, re-organizing the leadership landscape once more, reflecting the busy market for change despite market flux. Whilst those in middle-management have their own movements charted as part of the ‘great resignation’, towards the apex of company profiles, these leaders instead represent a new opportunity to support growth and consistency for 2022 and beyond.

Please join us in celebrating these Movers and Shakers leaders and their new roles and organizations:
