DBA set for restructuring

The Design Business Association is “restructuring and recruiting”, after the resignation of assistant chief executive Stephanie Smith.

As Design Week went to press, chief executive Ian Rowland-Hill declined to say whether Smith will be replaced. “We are restructuring and recruiting,” he says.

“Existing staff will have new and additional responsibilities, while the new staff will add to our current range of activities”. Smith is thought to be leaving London.
