CWT Names Richard Thompson as Vice President, Global Internal Communication & Culture

CWT, the B2B4E travel management platform, has appointed Richard Thompson Vice President, Global Internal Communication & Culture. In his newly expanded role, Richard and his team will be responsible for development of CWT culture, employee engagement, people strategy and HR analytics, in addition to continuing his charge of global internal communication.

Richard reports to Catherine Maguire-Vielle, Executive Vice President & Chief Human Resources Officer, at CWT. He is a member of both the Human Resources and Traveler Experience leadership teams.

“Having spent the last three years transforming, shaping and successfully delivering on CWT’s global employee communication strategy, Richard’s knowledge and understanding of our business, people and culture is second to none,” said Catherine Maguire-Vielle. “It’s this experience alongside Richard’s extensive change communication acumen that positions him perfectly to take our people strategy to new heights as a source of measurable value for our employees, customers and company operations alike,” concluded Catherine.

Richard and his global team will partner with executive leaders across the business to accelerate strategic projects around people strategy, company culture and employee community, employee empowerment and engagement. With a particular focus on embedding culture in company operations and grassroots empowerment, his Internal Communication and Culture team will drive employee understanding and engagement with CWT’s priorities as a leading B2B4E travel management platform.

Having joined the company as a Global Employee Communication Director in 2016, Richard was promoted a year later to head of Global Internal Communication, providing strategic advice and business partnership to leadership. He and his team were instrumental in building CWT Buzz, the company’s award-winning enterprise social intranet and online employee community. As part of Richard’s new mantle, he will relocate next month from Paris to CWT HQ in Minneapolis. Having lived in and worked in several countries over the span of his career, this move will bring his global perspective to the company US headquarter operations.

Prior to joining CWT, Richard spent over 25 years consulting in the automotive, manufacturing and B2B spaces with companies like Nissan Europe, Capgemini, Technip and Cargill where he successfully addressed the change and corporate communication challenges faced by multinational companies during global transformations. He holds a Bachelor of English Literature from the University of California, Santa Cruz.
