City Moves for 22 May – Who’s switching jobs at Neuro-Insight, Cushman & Wakefield and Airship?
Today's City Moves include Neuro-Insight, Cushman & Wakefield and Airship.
Neuro-Insight, a neuromarketing and neuroanalytics company that uses unique brain-imaging technology to measure how the brain responds to communications, has promoted Shazia Ginai to the role of UK chief executive. She will replace the current UK chief executive, Heather Andrew as she steps down from the business. Shazia joined Neuro-Insight in July 2017 as head of new business. Since then, the company has added a series of major brands to its client list, including the Telegraph, UKTV and Slimfast. The promotion recognises Shazia’s role in driving the company’s new business strategy and strengthening key relationships. As chief, Shazia will be responsible for strengthening Neuro-Insight’s profile, as well as further expanding the business and its impressive client portfolio. Shazia previously set up and led the global insight function for GHD. Prior to this, she worked at Proctor & Gamble for seven years, where she was responsible for designing and executing consumer research and building storytelling capability for their luxury fragrance and skincare brands. Heather, who has led the UK business since 2010, will stay on at Neuro-Insight as a non-executive director.

Cushman & Wakefield has appointed retail strategist Paul Durkin as head of UK retail. Paul joins from Asda, where he was senior director of strategy, to lead a team focused on delivering advisory services to clients operating in a sector evolving at unprecedented pace. Prior to joining Asda, one of Britain’s largest supermarket brands, Paul held senior strategy positions at SABMiller, Morrisons and McKinsey. He starts work at Cushman & Wakefield in June. Paul’s recruitment follows several other senior appointments at Cushman & Wakefield. Former Kingfisher’s group property manager Tim Crighton has joined to provide specialist retail supply chain and logistics advice to clients.
