Forty1, the employee engagement division of The Creative Engagement Group (TCEG), continues to expand its consultancy team with the appointment of Jason Frank as senior communications and engagement consultant from this month.
Reporting into Richard Burton, managing partner of Forty1, Jason brings with him extensive knowledge and deep expertise of what it takes to engage a modern workforce. Jason was CEO of the London office in the global communications agency MSL for over four years and founded its specialist employee practice. In 2018 he made the career move from agency management to focus purely on consulting in the area he is passionate about – employee engagement.
More recently, Jason has spent the last two and a half years working as an independent consultant on strategic change and engagement programmes with major organisations across a variety of sectors. During his career he has led complex global projects for some of the world’s leading organisations.
Richard Burton, managing director of Forty1 comments: “We are delighted to welcome Jason to the team we’re building at Forty1. As our clients seek to transform their business ready for the future of work, Jason’s insight into the changing needs and motivations of employees and his passion to create experiences that enrich their working lives, will be a tremendous asset for our fast-growing team.”
Jason Frank, senior communications and engagement consultant of Forty1 adds: “It’s exciting to be working with such a specialist team with strong strategic capabilities and support. The clients and the projects are really high quality and being able to tap into in-house experts in areas such as behavioural science, research, learning and virtual events is really exciting.”
With the acquisition of Vitiello Communications in January and a number of new hires in the last few months, the Forty1 team now stands at more than 50 people across Europe and North America, with more new hires planned for the second half of 2021.
