Digital People Moves Report: Winter Q1 24

Digital People Moves Report: Winter Q1 24

It will be encouraging to read of these executive & leadership appointments that have taken place in the last few months across the various sectors.

After a slowdown in leadership hires across consumer tech in 2023 and in particular the SME/early stage VC backed and PE backed investments, we are seeing some promising green shoots.

At Princedale, we had another fantastic year (the last two years being our best yet in terms of number of searches, placements, leadership team builds and new clients)!

Aside from the big tech companies that made significant redundancies through 2023, established consumer global brands (retail, cpg, travel, marketplace, fashion, luxury etc) have continued to hire over the last 6 months and I expect another busy year for us.

It is certainly a buyer’s market, and for those looking to make C suite, SVP & VP leadership hires, there are lots of great leaders open to new opportunities at the mo. Drop me a note if you have a leadership hire /search you would like to discuss at

As a reminder my expertise span Chief, SVP & VP Commercial, Marketing, Growth, Digital Product, Transformation, Operations, Data Analytics & Insight, Innovation + Customer Experience in the U.K, Europe and the U.S ($200,000 – $450,000 base salary range + equivalent).

Happy reading.
