New Street Consulting Group appoints Lea in new senior role

Dave Lea has been appointed managing partner at leadership and people solutions consultancy New Street Consulting Group (NSCG).

Lea will head up the talent acquisition division, leading the executive search, interim management and agile talent solutions teams. He will also take a seat on the board, according to a company statement.

Lea joins NSCG from Korn Ferry, where he was initially managing partner leading the industrial consulting practice across the EMEA Region, setting the strategy and execution through a large team of senior partners.
