GuyKat Expands With A New COO

The scale-up program includes moving to a new, larger UK head office at the Innovation Campus Birmingham, UK and the opening of a physical office in the USA.

Mark joins GuyKat after a varied 20-year career in various consulting and leadership roles with companies such as PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Cadbury, Unilever, PA Consulting and 02.

CEO, Guy McEvoy, said; “I’m delighted to be bringing Mark on board. It’s taken us over a year to find someone we believed could scale us up quickly without damaging the existing culture. Mark understands what our current staff and clients find so special about us. The international dimension will make keeping this magic whilst growing so quickly particularly challenging, but I’m excited to have someone I trust to drive this forward.”

Mark Broadbent said; ”It is an honour to join a company with such a strong culture. I am proud to be part of this new adventure at GuyKat, leading the scale up programme and excited about what the future has in store.”
