People UK

UK— Alistair Leathwood is leaving FreshMinds Research after nearly three years as managing director.

He could not be reached for comment at the time of publication. He is known to be relocating to Australia though it is not clear whether he has another job lined up.

In a statement, FreshMinds CEO Caroline Plumb said: “Alistair is a phenomenal individual and has been pivotal to the success of the business over the last few years. He’s delivered some great results for the business and we wish him all the best in his new endeavours.”

Leathwood joined FreshMinds in 2005 from Datamonitor where he was deputy managing director of the technology practice. He initially joined FreshMinds Talent – the firm’s recruitment consultancy division – before moving across to FreshMinds Research to lead as managing director.

A replacement has been lined up and will start work on 22 August, although the firm declined to name the individual at this time.
