LONDON; May 30, 2017 – Accenture has appointed Sevasti Wong as global Talent and Organisation consulting lead for the company’s Communications, Media & Technology (CMT) operating group, effective immediately. An Accenture veteran, Wong previously served as the Talent and Organisation lead for the CMT operating group in Europe, Africa and Latin America.
The Talent and Organisation practice helps clients improve performance through integrated talent, HR and organization change using a comprehensive approach to identifying workforce needs and aligning them with business goals.
Wong has led large-scale workforce transformation programmes for more than 17 years, serving some of Accenture’s largest global communications and media clients.
“Sevasti’s experience and success leading CMT’s Talent and Organisation group across Europe, Africa and Latin America since 2015 make her uniquely qualified to take on this new challenge,” said Bob Sell, group chief executive of Accenture’s Communications, Media & Technology operating group. “She is one of Accenture’s leading change-architects, and I am extremely pleased that she has agreed to expand her role further.”
Wong said, “Almost all of our clients are figuring out how to navigate their digital transformation journey and the reality is that every transformation program does in fact have a culture and people change at its core.
“We help our clients respond rapidly to changing market forces and navigate the workforce implications that arise as a result. I believe passionately that a critical part of that success depends on how companies embrace a growth mind-set and really focus on employee experience -- the moments that really matter for your workforce. I am excited that this new opportunity will allow me to work with clients on a global basis, to ensure they have the right next generation and critical workforces in place to propel their businesses.”
Wong was promoted to Accenture’s leadership team in 2011. She was named UK Business Woman of the Year at the Asian Women of Achievement Awards in 2015, is a regular speaker at industry events and is involved in supporting the next generation of women leaders reach their potential.
