Rivett moves on

Design Bridge chief executive David Rivett is stepping down from his position next week. “The objective for the past five years has been to establish the next generation of management,” and this is now complete, says Rivett.

The group now has individual managing directors for each of its four divisions, making his role unnecessary, Rivett says. He will not be directly replaced, but will continue working with Design Bridge as a non-executive director and consultant.

He says no further changes to the consultancy’s senior management is planned. Joint founder Philip Lawder left Design Bridge earlier this month (DW 22 September).
