Formerly CTW’s Vice President, Global Internal Communication and Culture, Thompson’s new role will see him lead the company’s responsible business activities and continue to oversee the company’s HR communications workplace culture initiatives.

Reporting to Executive Vice President and Chief HR Officer Laura Watterson, Thompson will also hand over global internal communications responsibilities to Julian Walker, CWT’s Chief Communications Officer.

Thompson joined CWT in 2016 and was appointed as VP, Global Internal Communications and Culture in January 2022.

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.

Thompson said, “I’m eager to accelerate CWT’s internal programmes and external positions related to sustainability and ESG issues, working closely with our Board of Directors, colleagues and partners around the world, to build on our foundation and make us a leader in this field.”

“Moreover, ESG is an integral part of the experience CWT provides its employees. In my new role, my primary goal will be to work with our teams to raise the level of our ESG and employee experience ratings, content, reporting, stakeholder communication and investor engagement with particular emphasis on sustainability issues.”
