Fitch is believed to have appointed headhunters to find a heavyweight designer for its London office.
The consultancy is thought to be seeking a product and multimedia design expert to increase its expertise and activities in those areas. It is understood that at least one global recruitment specialist, based in New York, has been retained by the international design group, although Fitch declines to comment.
Sources close to the company say that multimedia is proving to be a growth sector for Fitch. Any appointment, likely to be at director level, would be additional to the consultancy’s current team, rather than as a replacement for an existing staff member.
