Watt, who held senior roles at H+K Strategies and Cohn & Wolfe prior to spending the past eight years within the corporate communications and banking recruitment sectors, took up her new role earlier this month.

She said: "I’ve known Corporate Innovations for a number of years and when the opportunity arose to work with the team I was delighted to take up the challenge. Previously I’ve been focused on finding the right people for other organisations, so the opportunity to recruit future Corporate Innovations talent, then work alongside the team and watch them develop will be very fulfilling."

David Watt, managing director of Corporate Innovations, said that the appointment reflected the agency's commitment to recruiting the best people available, something which has led it to introduce a "broad range of exciting benefits" in the past year.

"Corporate Innovations’ headcount has grown 75% these past four years and we are looking to maintain that growth towards a team of 50 in the next few years," he said. "As a service based organisation, our ability to deliver and delight clients is reflected in the strength and depth of the people that we recruit.

"This past year we’ve put more energy than ever before into our current talent pool, so the time seems right to be investing in ensuring we are connected to the right people in the market in support of our future growth objectives. Karen has an unrivalled knowledge from both leading marketing agencies and the recruitment sector that positions her perfectly to fulfil this role."
