Child was a senior research director at Join the Dots when InSites Consulting acquired the business in 2019 and has gone on to become a partner within Human8. He is based in Manchester and will lead the company’s teams there and in London.

The company has also appointed Belgium-based Timo Vandemaele as head of Western Europe, while Anita Janssen in Düsseldorf becomes head of Dach (Germany, Austria and Switzerland).

The newly appointed heads will report to Magali Geens, managing director Emea.

The company has made the move to appoint territory leaders in Emea as it is the largest region for Human8, representing around half of its revenue.

Geens said: “Our new heads will allow us to be much closer to the needs of our clients, as well as our people in key markets across the region.”

“Three years ago, we created a new regional structure designed to service clients in the US, Apac and Emea, while also managing global relationships with priority accounts across the regions. Emea witnessed legacy brand teams from InSites Consulting, Columinate, eÿeka, Join the Dots and Happy Thinking People, working collaboratively across borders for the first time. This desire for local delivery of global consultancy services remains pivotal as we strive to stay close to clients in 12 markets.”
