Rethink Group appoints Lord CEO

02 November 2016

Rethink Group has appointed Andy Lord as chief executive.

Lord, whose recruitment career spans more than 20 years, has held senior positions on Rethink’s board since launch in 2005 and is one of the firm’s founding directors.

He will now manage all of the group’s divisions including ReThink Recruitment – of which Lord was formerly managing director – RTM, Berkley in Ireland, Cognita, as well Digital Gurus. 

Commenting on his appointment Lord reflected on a year of change for the group that has seen its brands “flourish”, bolstered by its acquisition of Digital Gurus in April.

“I’ll be building on that portfolio as we continue to help our clients with our suite of market-leading offerings.

“My priority here will be to invest in our people and networks to ensure Rethink is perfectly placed to holistically advise clients as they battle recruitment issues.

“There’s a prevailing skills gap in the digital sector and, as CEO, I’ll do everything I can to help clients tangibly address this, including training and nurturing my colleagues to ensure they’re equipped to make change happen.”
