"We are at the forefront of a sea change in our industry and Carl's expertise uniquely qualifies him to lead the North American operation," said Steve Harding, global CEO of Geometry Global. "An expert in the increasingly critical area of shopper marketing, Carl led the teams that won some of Geometry North America's largest pieces of business. He is a solution-driven, strategic thinker who is focused on his clients' success and I am delighted to welcome him to Geometry."

My deep respect and sincere thanks go to co-CEOs Harvey Kipnis and Sheila Hartnett, and all our North American colleagues, who have made this success possible. Without their hard work, Geometry Global North America would not be in the winning position it is in today."

Current Co-CEO Sheila Hartnett will take on the new position of Chairman, North America. As Chairman, Sheila will continue to play an important role in the growth of the North American operation, defining and providing counsel on strategic initiatives that provide on-going value to Geometry Global North America.
