ServiceNow has today announced the formation of its new EMEA Advisory Council, an independent body of senior business leaders with deep experience of key industries across Europe, Middle East and Africa.
Russell Chambers has joined the Advisory Council. Russell is Senior Advisor with Teneo, Bain Capital and Antin Infrastructure Partners and Independent Non-Executive Director of the LSE listed business GCP Student Living.
The council is formed of some of EMEA’s most prominent senior executives across the financial services, telecoms and utilities industries. It is tasked with leveraging those leaders’ expertise and insight to further help ServiceNow support businesses in mitigating the challenges of the pandemic, while enabling economic growth in the region.
Other council members include:
- Lone Fønss Schrøder is CEO of Concordium and sits on the board of Volvo Cars, Geely Sweden, Ingka BV (Ikea Group), Aker Solutions, Aker Horizons and CSL
- Rüdiger Grube is the Chairman of Vodafone Vantage Towers AG, Alstom Bombardier SE, Vossloh AG and Hamburger Harbour and Logistics Company HHLA AG
- Fred Kindle is Vice-Chairman and Lead Independent Director of Schneider Electric SA, Chairman of VZ Holding AG and member of the board at Stadler Rail
- Juan María Nin is a board member at Société General, Operating Partner at Corsair Capital, and holds other relevant positions in education and business as non-executive Chairman and senior advisor
Russell Chambers said “Businesses have been going through very challenging times and coming back strongly from this very difficult period is only going to be harder without the best systems, processes, and trusted partners in place. ServiceNow has developed the optimal partnership platform and is extraordinarily well positioned to address all the challenges ahead. Combining these strengths with the knowledge and experience of this advisory board is an exciting opportunity to help a wide range of companies going forward.”
Paul Smith, President, EMEA, ServiceNow said “Working alongside this amazing team of experts, with their deep understanding of key industries, we’ll be able to solve some of the biggest challenges that are facing organisations in a generation. Together with ServiceNow this group of world-class leaders will partner with our customers to build back stronger through exponential thinking that will reinvent their business to thrive, not just survive.
“We are already seen as the trusted advisor to many of the world’s most respected businesses to help them to digitally transform and reinvent their core businesses. We also provide the digital backbone in managing one of the most significant workflow challenges of our lifetime, the vaccine process. Together with NHS Scotland, the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia and the German Red Cross, DRK in Saxony, we are helping millions of citizens to get vaccinated.”
The council is expected to help accelerate ServiceNow’s continued growth in EMEA by giving its leadership team more access and influence in the C-suite while increasing revenue opportunities through major transformational deals.
