Imagine if more companies made decisions big and small based on their purpose—if more organizations were designed to welcome creativity and humanity; if more people worked in environments that fostered renewal and growth.

This is what I strive to create, both for SYPartners’ clients and for ourselves. We work alongside visionary CEOs—including those at AARP, Eileen Fisher, Ralph Lauren, Starbucks, Tory Burch, and WW (formerly Weight Watchers)—to transform their organizations to be more adaptive, inclusive, and guided by purpose.

What are you most excited about for kyu’s next five years?

Since the beginning, I have been personally inspired by kyu's animating belief that creativity can propel society and the economy forward. The promise of working with other organizations who bring creativity grounded in different root disciplines—policy, data, communications, design, innovation, strategy—thrills me. What might we take on together than none of us could do alone?
