Here Design has hired Tess Wicksteed, formerly executive vice president of Pearlfisher New York, as its newest strategy partner.

Wicksteed returned to London from New York last September and freelanced with Here, whose client-list includes Williams Sonoma, Bacardi, and Adidas.

“I kept thinking this is exactly what I want to be doing,” she said. “In essence we want to be seen as the latest incarnation of the arts and craft tradition. We don’t just want to create more stuff - we want to create authentic cultural experiences.”

In her new post, Wicksteed will work directly alongside the company’s founders, Kate Marlow, Caz Hildebrand, and Mark Paton.
