Andrew Clark

Global digital transformation consultancy Kin + Carta has demonstrated its ambitious growth plans with the appointment of former Google heavyweight Andrew Clark as Director of Product.

Clark’s role will see him spearheading the drive to be recognised as a best in class  product-led organisation – building digital solutions that are valuable, measurable and sustainable in real world environments for its clients.

With more than a decade spent developing product intelligence, Clark brings a wealth of knowledge to the role. 

Before joining  Kin + Carta, Clark held the position of product manager at DeepMind, where he was responsible for creating internal products that enabled up to a thousand people to work on the same problem simultaneously and collaboratively. 

After DeepMind was acquired by Google in 2014, Clark was part of the Google Health and DeepMind team that built a mobile medical assistant for NHS clinicians.

Clark’s experience includes a stint at Tesco, overseeing the strategy and development of an intelligence product. 

At Tesco, he developed customer facing apps and also helped launch Tesco’s online grocery shopping to international markets.

The hire follows a raft of new hires at senior level at the end of last year, a new go-to-market strategy and the strengthening of Kin + Carta’s position as a global digital transformation consultancy. 

The consultancy now has 1,700 specialists across four continents, delivering end-to-end digital transformation services for some of the world’s leading businesses. Clients include Cazoo, Santander, Lexus Europe and Tesco.

Last year, Kin + Carta achieved global B Corp certification, the first company on the London Stock Exchange to be recognised as such. 

More recently, Kin + Carta completed the purchase of software developer Melon Group and ecommerce consultancy Loop.

Clark said: “Kin + Carta currently has an unrivalled portfolio where we’re helping some of the biggest businesses in the world solve problems through product. 

“We are only at the start of digital transformation; the opportunity is huge and I want Kin + Carta to be at the centre of finding solutions that solve real problems.”

Mark Collin, Managing Director Product and Experience at Kin + Carta Europe said: “Andy is a great addition to a thriving team focused on taking Kin + Carta to the next level. 

“As one of the leading lights in contemporary product talent, he’s exactly what our product team needs to help execute our vision for digital transformation that makes the world better for everyone. 

“We’re excited about the impact he will have on our clients’ business as well as at Kin + Carta as a whole.”
