The appointment of Maneeza Williams to MD, currently executive search director, comes at a pivotal time for the business, who have seen robust levels of work throughout the Covid period.
“The team at Focus have shown huge levels of resilience and commitment to the business during what has been a challenging period in our history and we are all very proud of our successes and are more focused than ever on the next period of our evolution,” said Stephen Jones, founder of Focus. “My decision to move to an EO model, immediately offered the opportunity for colleagues to take more responsibility for our destiny and we agreed that my successor would come from within the team. I could not be more certain that the business will thrive with Maneeza’s leadership.”
Maneeza added: “I have worked in Focus for 16 years following on from a career in the corporate world. The values we share, the team ethos and the fantastic clients we work with make this such an exciting opportunity and one I can’t wait to build on our past success.”
