Barri Rafferty, former Ketchum CEO, has joined Morrow Sodali stakeholder engagement and ESG consulting firm as CEO of the Americas, a new position.

She exited the Omnicom unit in 2020 after a more than 25-year stint for Wells Fargo, where she was head of communications and brand management.

Rafferty left the bank in May.

Alvise Recchi, CEO of Morrow Sodali, said Rafferty “has global experience as a senior leader at dynamic companies and a track record of enhancing sales, building organizational effectiveness and creating collaboration across teams.” He's confident that Rafferty will drive growth across the Americas.

Rafferty also will work with TPG Growth, Morrow Sodali’s investment partner, to leverage the recent acquisitions of HXE Partners and Framework ESG, strategy and implementation firms.
