Second Quarter Moves Comparison

In our second quarterly roundup for 2017, we bring you a comparison report of appointment data from the past four years, including the percentage of those appointments awarded to women. Our snapshot drills down a little further and we find that while the number of female executive appointments is still under 30%, there appears to be a healthy increase in the number of female board appointments for the quarter.

Also amongst the highlights is the move that received the most views, the Q&A which generated the most interest, and the organisation that received the most visitors.

For those that are wondering how to drill down into the Industry Moves vault of data, we share a tip to make it easy for you to find the people behind the stats.
