Weightman will be responsible for supporting the agency’s growth, bolstering client partnerships and upscaling hedgehog lab’s businesses.

She was previously Head of Client Services for one of the UK’s leading savings management platforms and one of the North East’s most established Fintech businesses, Newcastle Strategic Solutions.

Weightman has a successful track record of delivering against challenging business goals, leading complex, multi-million dollar projects with global teams of 100+ for organisations, including Google and eBay.

Commenting on her appointment, Weightman said: “I’m hugely excited to be joining hedgehog lab as we embark on a new phase of growth.

“I am inspired by the hedgehog lab’s purpose ‘to empower our talent to do the best work of their lives’, particularly as a mechanism for accelerating growth.

“I want to ensure that we provide world-class experience for clients where we surprise and delight beyond the immediate scope of work.”

Sarat Pediredla, CEO at hedgehog lab, said: “I am confident that Clare’s unparalleled experience in client engagement and unique perspective will strengthen our relationship with our partners to propel us to the next level.”

As part of its growth strategy, the senior appointment follows hedgehog lab’s acquisition of digital agency Netsells in April, solidifying the consultancy’s market share in digital transformation services while supporting its latest venture in Generative AI.
