Marbral Advisory, a leading change and project management specialist, is delighted to announce its appointment of Dawn Rutherford, as Change Architect.
Dawn is an experienced and accredited change and project management professional with significant experience in organisation design, HR people planning, culture change, people engagement strategies, performance management implementation, business readiness and implementation.
She has worked across several sectors including financial services, energy and social housing.
Dawn worked for the Cooperative Banking Group for over 20 years in the UK, working in many different areas of the business, but mainly within HR and Business Change, supporting the organisation with its transformation programmes.
Since leaving the Cooperative Banking Group, Dawn has owned her own change management company, working across several sectors in the British Isles, providing change and project management support, employee engagement, organisation design and HR transformation support.
Dawn is passionate about the people side of change and helping make change stick, one of Marbral Advisory's core values.
Dawn explained, "Change is so much more than just a process or system transition. It's about the people involved. I concentrate on the individual's desire to transform, the organisation's culture, how the people are led, and their knowledge and understanding of the change."
She added, "Organisations are beginning to understand that the only way to truly realise project benefits, is when they can help their people change their behaviour. This will only happen if they focus on the emotion of change, understand where there might be resistance and take action."
She added, "I made the decision to join Marbral Advisory, as I wanted to develop my own knowledge and experience working with a recognised market leader that invests in its people and that mirrors my passion for people and change."
Leonie McCrann, CEO (British Isles), Marbral Advisory commented on Dawn's appointment; "Change comes in many forms and with numerous catalysts from disruptive technologies such as artificial intelligence to regulatory and socio-economic opportunities and challenges. It is more important than ever that companies have trusted partners who can support their leadership teams to navigate their people and organisations through such change. Dawn has a proven track record in doing just that. She is a driven, resilient change agent and we are delighted to welcome her to the Marbral team."
