Bagshaw said: “Given its ongoing global growth and people-centric culture, IQ-EQ is a hugely exciting group to be part of – especially as an HR professional. I am delighted to have the opportunity to bring my own expertise to the table and lead IQ-EQ’s global people agenda and HR function forward as it continues to reach new heights.”
Lamy added: “Over the past few months we have engaged in a robust and thorough recruitment process to ensure we secured for IQ-EQ the very best chief people officer that the market had to offer. I am confident we have found the right candidate in Caroline and feel comfortable in the knowledge that I’ll be leaving IQ-EQ’s people agenda in very safe hands.”
