Katrin Suder, who spent almost 15 years as a McKinsey consultant, has joined FGS Global, which was formerly known as Finsbury Glover Hering, as a senior advisor in its corporate reputation practice. She is based in Germany.
Suder counseled McKinsey's information technology companies on strategy projects.
She exited the management consultant in 2014 for the state secretary post in Germany's Ministry of Defense and chaired the ten-member digital council of the German government under Angela Merkel.
Brigitte von Haacke, CEO Europe of FGS Global, called Suder a high-profile strategy expert.
"The demands on companies are extremely high in times of climate change, geopolitical conflicts, digitalization, and a growing importance of diversity," von Haacke said in a statement. "This calls for forward-looking ideas and bright minds. In this sense, welcome, dear Katrin."
FGS Global is part of WPP.
