Kin + Carta, the digital transformation business, has appointed John Kerr as its new non-executive chairman.

Kerr previously worked as global vice chairman of Deloitte Consulting, and as chief executive prior to that.

He will succeed outgoing non-executive chairman Richard Stillwell.

Kin + Carta provides digital transformation services to help businesses launch new products and services. It is headquartered in London, and employs 1,500 people globally.

Commenting on the appointment, J Schwan, CEO of Kin + Carta, commented: "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. He will be the keystone of our invigorated Board.

"I would like to thank Richard Stillwell for the commitment he has given to this business over the past 13 years: He has offered calm and intentional leadership to the Board during a transformational time and we will miss his contribution greatly."

Kerr added: "I have spent my entire career advising global businesses on how best to position themselves for growth. Latterly, at Deloitte Digital we created the world's leading digital transformation brand. Kin + Carta is extremely well-positioned to be a leader in this market and I'm excited to be joining such an agile and dynamic business. I look forward to working with the new leadership team and the rest of the Board as we move forward with this strategy."
