Dafydd succeeds previous Managing Partner, Paul Edwards, who will continue to play an active part in the business whilst focusing on an additional, external role.
He added: “SCi Parters is extremely fortunate in gaining the experience and fresh perspective which Dafydd will bring to his role.
“To attract as high calibre an individual as Dafydd demonstrates the strong reputation SCi Partners already enjoys, and I am convinced that his expertise in high-level, scientific resourcing will ably support the hiring needs of our clients as they respond to the emerging challenges we are all now face, regardless of sector.”
