Harvey Nash FD moves up to CEO

IT recruitment firm Harvey Nash has promoted group FD Albert Ellis to chief executive officer, following David Treacher’s retirement.

The boardroom shakeup, which also saw CEO David Higgins step up to executive deputy chairman, came as the company announced an ambitious global growth programme.

This is expected to come into fruition over the next three years, ‘although in the short term the investment required will inevitably hold back our progress,’ the group said in its trading update.

Ellis will continue his finance duties until an interim group FD is appointed.
