The Leading Edge in Sydney hiring spree

Asia Pacific People

AUSTRALIA— Strategic research consultancy The Leading Edge has recruited five new members of staff after winning work from several major new clients including Tabcorp, Kraft and Wrigley.

The firm has appointed Jonathan Wibberley and Derek McInnes as senior consultants and Barbara Grausgruber, Simone Sandoval and Nicole Menezes in account and project management positions.

Managing partner Chris Paxton said: “We are still recruiting to keep pace with the increased demand we have for our research consultancy services. There is a new trend emerging where we are seeing a move away from the more tactical projects that typified the past 18 months, as clients are now focusing on more strategic issues.”

All the new arrivals will work out of the firm’s Sydney office.
