Williams takes the helm at Nakama Group

Andrea Williams has been appointed CEO at international recruiter Nakama Group.

Williams joined Nakama in December as a non-executive director. Angus Watson, who has been interim CEO since September, following Rob Sheffield’s departure from the firm, will revert to his previous position as chief financial officer.

Williams, who has worked in recruitment across Asia, Australia and the UK, has held senior managerial and board positions at a number of private and publicly-quoted recruitment companies and is a former managing director at specialist recruiter Ambition Group and sales director at IT recruiter Outsource UK.

Meanwhile, Ken Ford has resigned as non-executive chairman and is succeeded by Tim Sheffield, who is the current chairman of executive search and talent advisory group Sheffield Haworth, stepping up from his current non-executive director role at Nakama to become non-executive chairman.
