I am sure she will thrive on the high pace and international nature of what we do."
Libby Fisher commented: "I am truly delighted to be joining forces with Nakama so soon after their listing. I have known Ken Ford, the Chairman, for several years and have more recently got to know Stefan and the rest of the senior team. LFA and Nakama share a passion for building long term 'trusted advisor' client relationships and I look forward very much to working closely with them to create a high quality senior level search business in a sector where they already have a strong international reputation."

Notes to Editors:
Nakama Group plc
Nakama Group plc, is the AIM quoted recruitment consultancy and leading niche provider of technology, business and professional services to the insurance and financial services sectors and recruitment for the digital technology and interactive media industry.
Following the acquisition of Nakama Limited by Nakama Group plc (formerly Highams Systems Services plc) in October 2011, the Group now has an international platform, operating from offices in London, Melbourne, Sydney, Hong Kong and most recently, now in Singapore, with a specialism in recruitment for the digital technology and interactive media industry.
The company places emphasis on providing excellent levels of service and industry knowledge to deliver single or multiple solutions for its clients. The directors of Nakama believe that whilst companies may continually try to reduce their supplier base, they demand wider fulfilment and services from their recruitment partners.
In response to this, Nakama supplies staff through the whole chain of technology lifecycle, where other IT or technology recruiters might supply only one part of the chain. Nakama was formed to take advantage of an opportunity the founders saw to provide services across the spectrum of the digital technology and interactive media industry on an international level.
