Kin + Carta has strengthened its global leadership team by promoting Richard Neish to global chief strategy officer and Michelle McGuire to global chief of staff.
Neish (pictured) will report to Kin + Carta CEO J Schwan, working closely with him to implement the company’s strategy and execute its long-term vision. His remit also includes supporting the regional executive team’s strategic planning process, M&A programme, and acquisition integration process.
He steps up from his previous role as global managing director of Kin + Carta Connect, the consultancy’s data-driven marketing technology arm. In that role, Neish presided over the restructure of Kin + Carta Connect in Europe and the launch of the business in the Americas.
In her role as global chief of staff, McGuire will report directly to Neish and collaborate with global and regional executives and leaders to drive cross-regional engagement to support the rollout of the consultancy’s strategic plan.
McGuire moves up from her role as director of digital products and services. During her seven years with the company, she worked as a consultant at Solstice, which became the cloud, data, and software engineering studio within Kin + Carta Americas through acquisition.
“Richard and Michelle’s promotions into global roles will support our business growth worldwide, in a way that aligns with our commitment to the triple-bottom-line of people, planet and profit as an accredited B Corp,” said J Schwan, Kin + Carta CEO. “Both have already been instrumental in our growth, helping to set our narrative from strategic planning right through to our employee value proposition. This global remit will help us deliver excellence for our people as well as our clients.”
The promotions come after Kin + Carta achieved B Corp status in the Americas earlier this year and in Europe last month.
