New Fitch Chairman proves to be a popular choice

I have finally taken up the role of Chairman at Fitch (DW 6 November) and would like to say a word of thanks.

I have finally taken up the role of Chairman at Fitch (DW 6 November) and would like to say a word of thanks.

My thanks go, first, to Martin Sorrell, whose idea that I should rejoin Fitch it was, and to Design Week, which was tactful yet generous in reporting the idea.

Above all, my thanks go to those well-wishers who have contacted me with expressions ranging from ‘good luck’ to ‘brilliant’. I have received dozens of kindly, encouraging messages from all over the world.

I am simply overwhelmed by all the generosity and goodwill and I shall try hard to live up to expectations.
