Architecture and interior design practice Jump Studios, a Populous company, has appointed Debbie Power as principal.

Power (pictured centre) joins Jump Studios after an 18-year career as an interior designer at KSS, where she worked on a range of projects, including Liverpool’s Anfield expansion, Tottenham Hotspur’s training centre, Twickenham’s East Stand redevelopment, and Club Wembley experience upgrades.

Jump Studios’ client list includes Google, Nike, Levi’s, Beavertown and Ministry of Sound. Working with Populous, the practice has an extensive portfolio of interiors projects, including Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, LDLC Arena in Lyon, UBS Arena in New York, and the soon-to-open Co-op Live in Manchester.

Power said: “I am passionate about the experience-led design and creating bespoke solutions for every project I work on. I enjoy the diversity of ideas and perspectives across design disciplines, and I am proud of my portfolio. I now look forward to bringing my experience to further enhance the innovative design work that Jump Studios is known for.”

Power’s appointment comes after David Hodge recently joined Populous from Vinoly Architects, where he oversaw design and construction for projects such as the Manchester City Football Academy, and training facilities for New York City FC and Melbourne City FC.

Ticketing company AXS has appointed Marc Ruxin as its new chief strategy officer.

Ruxin (pictured left) will lead overall strategy and corporate development opportunities globally and will report directly to AXS chief executive Bryan Perez. Ruxin will take over corporate strategy and development responsibilities previously held by Blaine Legere, who transitioned to president of international last year.

Prior to joining AXS, Ruxin held positions as chief operating officer and chief marketing officer of music streaming service Rdio, and chief innovation officer at Universal McCann and McCann Erikson.

Sussex Cricket has appointed Pete Fitzboydon as its new chief executive.

Fitzboydon previously served as chief executive of London Sport, Badminton England and Cycling UK. He most recently served as interim chief executive of Cricket Scotland.

His appointment at Sussex follows an extensive recruitment process and he will begin his new role on March 11.

The Green Bay Packers NFL team has announced details of the search process for its next president and chief executive, with Mark Murphy set to retire in July 2025 when he turns 70.

Murphy has served as president and chief executive of the Packers since 2007, but NFL by-laws state that team presidents must retire at 70.

The search committee for a new president will include several team officials, as well as input from national search firm Korn Ferry. The committee’s work is expected to take six to nine months.

Digital identity solutions firm Signicat has appointed Philipp Wegmann as country manager in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Wegmann (pictured right) previously held various positions at IDNow and most recently served as director of partner management.
