GlobeScan Announces the Appointment of New Board Member

Gail Klintworth - GlobeScan Chair of the Board

12th October 2016 – GlobeScan is pleased to announce the appointment of Gail Klintworth as a new member of its Board of Directors.
Doug Miller, Chairman at GlobeScan said: “It is with great pleasure that I welcome Gail Klintworth as a new independent Director of GlobeScan. Gail brings vital perspective and experience to our company, from her time as Chief Sustainability Officer (CSO) of Unilever and more recently with the Old Mutual Group. She has a fresh outlook from working across 150 countries in the global consumer goods and financial services sector and significant operational knowledge across African markets. We expect that Gail will be a strong contributor to GlobeScan’s growth strategy and long-term success.”
Gail is currently helping to build a new company, SYSTEMIQ, which is focussed on catalysing change to transform markets and scale sustainable solutions. Previously, Gail was the Group Customer Director and Responsible Business Lead at Old Mutual plc responsible for the Group’s delivery of their customer, brand and digital growth strategies. She helped the Group to inclusively shape the Old Mutual Positive Futures Plan to deliver against their strategic objective of becoming “the recognised financial services leader in Responsible Business.”
Before joining Old Mutual plc in August 2014, Gail worked for Unilever for 28 years, most recently as Chief Sustainability Officer, responsible for driving the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan which aims to double Unilever’s business turnover while reducing its environmental impact and increasing its positive social impact. In prior roles, Gail led a number of Unilever’s global categories and brands, and was CEO of Unilever’s business in South Africa.
Gail Klintworth said: “In my opinion GlobeScan has a remarkable capability to deliver true insight and support for those who wish to address the ever-increasing trust chasm between various players in society. Addressing this trust deficit in an authentic way is essential as we work together to shift to a more regenerative and inclusive economy, the greatest opportunity and unsolved challenge of our time.”
