KIN + CARTA ATTRACTS TOP GOOGLE TALENT TO HEAD UP PRODUCT TEAM
Global digital transformation consultancy Kin + Carta has demonstrated its ambitious growth plans with the appointment of former Google heavyweight Andrew Clark as director of product.
Clark’s role will see him spearheading the drive to be recognised as a best in class product-led organisation - building digital solutions that are valuable, measurable and sustainable in real world environments for its clients.
With more than a decade spent developing product intelligence, Clark brings a wealth of knowledge to the role. Before joining Kin + Carta, Clark held the position of product manager at DeepMind, where he was responsible for creating internal products that enabled up to a thousand people to work on the same problem simultaneously and collaboratively. After DeepMind was acquired by Google in 2014, Clark was part of the Google Health and DeepMind team that built a mobile medical assistant for NHS clinicians.
Clark’s experience includes a stint at Tesco, overseeing the strategy and development of an intelligence product. At Tesco, he developed customer facing apps and also helped launch Tesco’s online grocery shopping to international markets.
The hire follows a raft of new hires at senior level at the end of last year, a new go-to-market strategy and the strengthening of Kin + Carta’s position as a global digital transformation consultancy. The consultancy now has 1,700 specialists across four continents, delivering end-to-end digital transformation services for some of the world's leading businesses. Clients include Cazoo, Santander, Lexus Europe and Tesco.
Mark Collin, managing director product and experience at Kin + Carta Europe says, “Andy is a great addition to a thriving team focused on taking Kin + Carta to the next level. As one of the leading lights in contemporary product talent, he’s exactly what our product team needs to help execute our vision for digital transformation that makes the world better for everyone. We’re excited about the impact he will have on our clients’ business as well as at Kin + Carta as a whole.”
