In a message to all members of the team, Paul Priestman said:
“With the start of 2022 I have announced, that at the end of March, I plan to start a new venture and therefore will be leaving PriestmanGoode.
I have enjoyed all of my years with PG right from its early beginnings and being part of its growth into a world leading creative company.
I leave PG in a strong and growing position, with a great management team, excellent leadership and the best creative people in the world. I am also very proud that PG is an employee-owned company and that everybody at PG now shares in its continued success.
I have always aimed to start something new again and now that PG is in such a strong and stable position it is no longer dependent upon me. It is a perfect time to let others take more leading roles”.
Kirsty Dias, Managing Director of PriestmanGoode said:
“On behalf of everyone at PriestmanGoode, I’d like to express our gratitude to Paul for making PG the successful, world-leading design company that it is today. We are committed to continuing his blueprint of insatiable curiosity in the new and what’s next, and simple and effective design. We’ll be working with him to ensure a seamless transition in the coming months. His departure is a natural extension of the employee ownership journey that Paul began in 2016 with the intention of securing PG’s long-term future and success.”
Nigel Goode, Founding Director of PriestmanGoode said:
“With Paul’s departure I will take on the role of Chairman to support the Board of Directors and PG in its next steps. I am also pleased to announce that our Design Directors Dan MacInnes and Son Tran will join the Board as part of this transition. As an employee-owned company the whole team is fully invested in the success of our work, for our clients and for the millions of people who benefit from our designs every day. We are excited about the opportunities we have today and those ahead.”
