    Welcome to Interactive and its consulting team! Please see below some more information on the team of consultants who you may be dealing with…

    David W. Smith – CEO

    David founded Interactive in 1996 as the world’s first recruitment agency in interactive entertainment to abandon the practice of advertising jobs in the trade press, preferring to have its reputation spread by well satisfied clients through word of mouth. For the last 20 years he has built Interactive into one of the world’s leading search firms, working in the USA, Canada, Australia, China, Japan, Korea as well as all countries in Europe.
    Educated at Rugby School and Hull University, he is a qualified Chartered Accountant. In 2015 he was awarded Honorary Fellowship of the UK’s Institute of Recruitment Professionals, one of only 20 to have demonstrated an outstanding personal contribution to the recruitment industry.
