Movers and shakers

Sapphire has been tracking moves by senior women for 9 years and these findings highlight that there is a material talent pool of women increasingly moving into senior roles. Our Movers & Shakers reports show female board and executive moves, predominantly within the FTSE 350. It also includes interesting appointments outside the UK, as well as women who have stepped down from roles. Recent editions, from November 2012, cover quarterly moves.

The findings are broken down into three sections (board appointments; executive appointments and departures) and four sectors (financial services, corporates, professional services and the charity sector).

The broadening of backgrounds and new board appointments is encouraging. These reports underscore the considerable breadth and depth of senior female talent available to the business world which Sapphire Partners is expert in.
