Brunswick Group, the world’s leading critical issues firm, today announced that W. Robert de Jongh will join the firm’s Business & Society practice group as a Partner in Washington, D.C. on October 18.
For nearly 30 years, Robert has devised and implemented innovative social impact strategies for global organizations in both the public and private sectors. He has advised leaders on how to embrace a broader role in society by aligning commercial returns with social value creation. Most recently, he was Managing Director of Digital and Strategic Transformations at Deloitte and was a founder of Deloitte’s Social Impact practice.
Neal Wolin, Chief Executive Officer, said: “Robert has extensive experience in working at the intersection of business, society and public policy with complex, global organizations. We look forward to welcoming him to our Business & Society team, which is expanding around the world to meet growing demand for trusted advice on critical societal issues.”
On joining Brunswick, W. Robert de Jongh said: “Purpose is increasingly the currency that drives marketplace differentiation for leading companies around the world. Having spent the better part of three decades advising clients on how to achieve that distinction, I recognize the importance of trust. Brunswick is one of the most trusted critical advisory firms in the world and is uniquely placed to help clients realize their purpose. I couldn’t be more excited to join its ranks.”
