Simpson previously acted as associate director at the agency, leading the technology team for the past four years. He aims to bring a new focus to the agency, as well as build further momentum on its growth with a number of new revenue initiatives planned for the year.

Simpson takes over from Jennifer Janson who has led the agency since 2005. She will now act as chairman and focus her time on other projects, including a new curation platform for business books called mybusinessbookclub.com.

Janson said: “The time feels right for a fresh approach. Richard is one of the most passionate and experienced people I know, and the right person to take us to the next level.”

Simpson said: “I’m humbled to have been given this opportunity. Six Degrees has a fantastic reputation in the STEM sector, and the fact that some clients have been with us since it was founded four-decades ago says a lot about the support we offer and results we deliver. We have ambitious plans to build on that, but I know I have the right team in place to do that.”
