A.T. Kearney has added leadership expert Sabine Dembkowski to its team. Dembkowski, who recently founded her own leadership service practice in Germany and is an Executive Development Advisor at the London Business School, will support the firm’s clients make the most of their executive and governance capabilities.
Prior to re-joining A.T. Kearney, Sabine Dembkowski co-founded Better Boards, a boutique professional services firm focused on improving boards. She currently works at the London Business School, where she has been for eleven years, as an Executive Development Advisor. Earlier in her career she was the Founder & Director of The Coaching Centre; Leadership Advisor at Heidrick & Struggles; Senior Manager at Monitor; and Senior Consultant at A.T. Kearney.
Dembkowski, who is based in London, holds a Ph.D. in Business and Management from the Bristol Business School.
In her new role as Associated Partner, Dembkowski will focus on supporting engagements within the firm’s global Leadership, Change and Organization practice – the service line of the consulting firm supports organisations to better leverage the full potential of their governing bodies and with human capital matters.
Hagen Goetz Hastenteufel, Partner and Practice Leader of A.T. Kearney’s Leadership, Change and Organization practice in EMEA, says that the firm is “pleased” to welcome Sabine to the firm. Adding, “We are looking forward to expanding our offering and working with our most senior clients to support them in redefining how they individually and as a governing body create value for their organisation and their shareholders. This is especially important at a time of increasing market complexity, digital disruption, macroeconomic and geopolitical changes, increasingly stringent legislation, and internal and external scrutiny.”
“Sabine brings considerable experience in advising the most senior executives and enabling them to bring more of themselves to their executive position", comments Beth Bovis, Partner and Global Head of A.T. Kearney’s Leadership, Change and Organization practice. She adds, "Our joint approach to value creation is grounded on variables that are specific to Board and Executive bodies’ behaviors, processes and structures. With this new offering we bring corporate governance to life, enhance the story of fundraising and help differentiate a firm in the eyes of its management.”
