BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Innosight, an innovation and growth consulting firm, announced today that Matthew Eyring has been elected the firm’s first Managing Partner. In this position Eyring, formerly Innosight’s president, will lead the firm’s strategy and operations.
Innosight has experienced considerable growth over the past two years, with new offices in Singapore and India and an expanding client base that includes global corporations in industries such as health care, financial services and consumer goods.
Scott D. Anthony will continue to lead Innosight’s Asian operations as Managing Director of Innosight Asia Pacific, and Innosight cofounder Mark W. Johnson will continue to develop new client services and intellectual property as Senior Partner.
The new leadership structure positions the firm to build on its growth momentum as the advisor of choice to companies seeking to develop innovation capabilities, identify new growth opportunities, and improve performance.
Eyring joined the firm in 2001 and has co-led the firm’s healthcare practice, helping clients discover and develop high-potential growth opportunities. Before joining Innosight, he was a product manager at medical device company Medtronic and before that advised telecom and retail companies as a strategy consultant with Monitor Company.
The firm also announced two board-related changes. Richard N. Foster, a five-year member of Innosight’s board, was named lead director. Foster is the managing partner of Millbrook Management Group, LLC and a former senior partner and director at McKinsey & Company, where he led the firm’s private equity practice and co-founded the firm’s high-technology practice. He is the author of two best-selling books, Innovation: The Attacker’s Advantage and Creative Destruction and is a Senior Faculty Fellow at the Yale School of Management.
“It’s an exciting time for Innosight,” said Foster. “Growth and innovation are top strategic priorities for global corporations and Innosight’s rigorous consulting model and client-centric focus have helped it achieve impressive growth and expansion into new markets in the last two years. Matthew Eyring’s election as Managing Partner will help ensure the firm builds on this momentum and continues to expand its global reach and deliver profound value to its clients. I am confident Matthew’s leadership and passion for the interests of the firm will serve Innosight well in its next stage of growth.”
In addition, Innosight announced the appointment of Jim Dougherty to its board. Dougherty has nearly 30 years of diverse operating experience in IT, including executive positions at Lotus Development, Gartner, and Prodigy. He brings significant experience in scaling companies, having helped grow several startups to nearly a billion dollars of revenue. He is a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, entrepreneur in residence at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and cofounder of Madaket, a healthcare IT company based in Boston.
Clayton Christensen, the Harvard Business School professor and author who cofounded Innosight, continues to play an advisory role to the firm.
