Despite Clive Grinyer’s probings into the plans of Richard Eiserman, his successor at the Design Council (see Profile), we will have to wait until October to hear the full story. That is when the council’s new chief executive David Kester is due to deliver his review of the organisation and strategy for the future.
But we can draw clues from Eiserman’s appointment as director of design and innovation by Kester. Like Grinyer, he has worked as a product designer both in industry and the consultancy world, but, more importantly, he’s a global player. Sounds like a great start
