Dickens has been working with charities ‘on sabbatical’ for 12 months, according to the consultancy’s creative director Keren House, who says Dickens will leave the group to move overseas.
House, who is now acting as managing director, says, ‘Lin is moving with her family, as her husband is in the armed forces and has just been re-posted.’
She adds, ‘Lin and I worked very well together for a long time, so we’re taking it very gently at the moment. There are no plans to replace her for now and no one is waiting in the wings.’
House says there will not be any strategic shift at the consultancy, which is to continue working with long-term clients including Dickens’ first client Honeywell, Bank of America and RBS.
