GBG, the specialist Identity Data Intelligence provider, has announced the appointment of James Miller to the role of Chief People Officer. James brings with him a strong focus on people engagement and development and joins GBG from Adobe where he held roles in San Francisco, Paris and London. James brings with him particular experience in onboarding new teams through acquisition which will be crucial in helping GBG achieve its stated growth ambitions over the next five years. His role will encompass everything related to the overall employee experience, building on GBG’s already excellent team engagement and culture, overseeing all aspects of the GBG people strategy from traditional HR and talent management practices through to internal communications and the Group’s physical office spaces.
Richard Law, CEO of GBG says: "James' arrival is another important milestone in the development of GBG’s VOS 2020 (Vision, Objectives and Strategies), creating an environment where every team member is aware of our business plans and their personal impact on those, and is recognised and rewarded for their contribution. Our current staff engagement scores are consistently 80%+ but as we continue to bring new, multi-national, teams on board, it is vital that we concentrate on creating the culture and structures that will maintain this high level of engagement. James’ appointment gives us that focus.”
On his proposed strategy for people development, James commented: “We want to ensure all our managers and team members have the tools, skills and knowledge to deliver our strategy in a scalable manner. It will be crucial for us to grow our brand quickly and I’m really excited about joining the GBG leadership team to define how we enable all our people to achieve our ambitious growth plans.”
