London, UK, 8 February, 2024 – GKN Automotive, the global leader in drive systems, has expanded the role of current Chief Communications and Sustainability Officer, Dr. Clare Wyatt to include the global human resources function. With immediate effect, Dr. Wyatt will take the role of Chief People, Communications and Sustainability Officer.

Dr. Wyatt joined GKN Automotive as Chief Communications Officer in January 2020, with her role expanding in 2022 to encompass sustainability. Over the past 18 months, she has developed the company’s global sustainability strategy, driven by the business’ corporate purpose – to drive a cleaner, more sustainable world. Last month, the company’s net zero targets were validated by the independent Science-Based Targets initiative.

With the addition of the human resource function to Dr. Wyatt’s remit, she will seek to align and further strengthen the three core functions, building on the existing collaboration between the teams. With ‘Our People’ as one of four pillars driving our sustainability framework, Dr. Wyatt has already played a pivotal role in further developing the company’s approach to encouraging our talent to reach their full potential and encouraging a safety-focused and inclusive culture.

Dr. Clare Wyatt comments: “Our people are at the heart of GKN Automotive, helping us to develop and deliver market-leading products and technologies. Inspiring our team to reach their full potential, while also attracting the next generation of talent will keep us at the forefront of a rapidly evolving industry. I am delighted to take on this new challenge.”

Markus Bannert, CEO of GKN Automotive, comments: “As a global business of 25,000 people, we place the highest value on our team to drive business success. With Clare’s knowledge and expertise in the company, and a clear focus driven by our company purpose, she is exceptionally well-positioned to enhance and accelerate our people strategy.”
