News People UK

UK – Digital transformation business Kin + Carta has appointed John Kerr as its new chairman.

Kerr (pictured) is taking over from Richard Stillwell. Kerr has been chief executive of Deloitte Consulting and was most recently its global vice-chairman between 2016 and 2018.

He led the creation of Deloitte Digital in 2012, the first dedicated digital consulting business, and grew the business organically and by strategic acquisition to $4bn in revenue with operations in 30 countries.

Previously called St Ives, Kin + Carta has been shifting to a digital marketing business and this appointment is part of that strategy.

J Schwan, chief executive officer of Kin + Carta, said: “We set out on this search to find a chairman with deep experience scaling technology service businesses on a global scale. We found all of that and more with John. John is a pioneer in the business transformation arena.  His experience building and scaling Deloitte Digital fits perfectly with Kin + Carta’s plans to build a business which addresses the growing demand for digital transformation.”
