Jennifer Schivas has been promoted to CEO of 67 Bricks following a restructuring of the leadership team. The new title recognises the work Schivas has done to take over the company’s running from the co-founders, Sam Herbert and Inigo Surguy, who both move to Co-Chairs of the Board of Directors.
In addition, David Leeming moves from Delivery Director to CTO and takes full ownership of the technology strategy for the consultancy firm.
‘The company we founded 16 years ago is going through an exciting period of development,’ commented Sam Herbert, ‘and we’re delighted to have Jennifer take the reins as CEO to take 67 Bricks into the future.’
The new structure reflects the growing success of 67 Bricks as it provides vital technology leadership to the publishing world. The company’s client base has seen a real diversification in the last few years, from AI consultancy for private equity firms, to technology strategy consultancy for scholarly publishers, to full content platform builds for B2B information companies such as The Economist and IWSR.
Jennifer added ‘Now, more than ever, we’re speaking to business leaders who need experienced technologists to help them navigate the fast-moving and uncertain landscape they find themselves in. I’m proud to be tasked with ensuring 67 Bricks remains the trusted voice of reason against the noisy backdrop of change in the information industry.’
