Wilton & Bain secures Tim Baker as a Partner in its Global People and Culture Practice.
Based in London, Tim will join the firm to build their Global People and Culture Practice.
“I am delighted to be joining Wilton & Bain at an exciting point in the growth of the business. With a track record of working in partnership with organisations that are going through growth, change and transformation, Wilton & Bain have brought insight and experience to some of the world’s most prominent businesses,“ says Mr Baker. “In addition to technology, data and digital transformation, organisations also recognise that having the right people and culture drives commercial results and competitive advantage. Greater scrutiny is being placed on organisations in areas such as executive compensation and ‘the gender pay gap’ and having the right Chief People Officer is critical in navigating these important issues. Wilton & Bain have a network of seasoned leaders but also focus on emerging talent, an area I am passionate about as it is future-focused and helps organisations drive better diversity. I am delighted to be joining, leading the Global People & Culture Practice, to enable the firm to bring further insight to companies in a market where talent attraction, retention and development will always be a priority to organisations globally.”
Lisa Peacock Edwards, Managing Partner says, "As we continue to grow our business globally the People and Culture practice plays an important part in our success. With Tim joining we can be a true partner and advisor to existing and future CHRO’s as they look to drive change and growth within their businesses. Tim’s track record is exciting as it continues to build on our vision of thought leadership, market insights and advisory practices in Europe and the Americas.”
David Heron, Chief Executive Officer of The Wilton & Bain Group, says: “I am delighted that Tim has decided to join Wilton & Bain. We first met over 5 years ago and have watched his career with interest.
We have taken our time to find the right person to lead our People and Culture Practice and Tim brings all the qualities we look for in our Partners. First and foremost, he is a great guy, with great values. Secondly, his reputation and track record speak for themselves. Working alongside Chloe Watts in our interim business, we are excited about what he can build on our platform.”
