Kidd Aitken is delighted to announce that we continue to expand our senior leadership team with the appointment of a new Practice Director. With 15 years’ experience in people management in the insurance and recruitment industries, Emma Wainwright joins us to aid our ongoing structural and cultural development.

Based in the UK, Emma’s career has included global organisations such as Zurich Insurance and Michael Page. Her experience overseeing a variety of teams has culminated in a people-focused approach to business transformation. With experience on both the people and operational sides of business management, Emma has the skills to unite the two for effective and successful growth.

Spanning from the UK, to Canada, Mexico and beyond, Kidd Aitken’s team of remote-working consultants encourages a fresh approach to people management. “Operating as a global, remote-working company means that Kidd Aitken offers exciting opportunities to rethink people management and company culture,” says Emma. “I am looking forward to helping build an inclusive, welcoming culture – irrespective of the physical distance between teams.”

“We are delighted to announce Emma’s appointment to Kidd Aitken’s senior leadership,” says Daniel Kidd, one of the firm’s co-founders and directors. “She brings a sensitive, insightful, and – most importantly – individual-focused perspective on people relations. We greatly anticipate the changes that Emma and our Director of Operations Gerardo Sosa will put into place. Both in terms of our culture and processes – and, of course, how they interact.”

“Emma’s plans for our people strategy have the potential to revolutionise our remote working processes,” adds Jacob Aitken, fellow co-founder and director. “Her ideas for bringing us closer despite physical distance are dynamic and exciting. All I can say is watch this space!”

“It’s great to finish at the end of the day knowing that you are part of something that is moving and growing. Building foundations for the future is hugely exciting,” says Emma. “The team’s enthusiasm is tangible, and I am excited to apply my experience from larger businesses to this dynamic organisation.”

Over the past year, Kidd Aitken has grown to over 50 employees, and Daniel Kidd and Jacob Aitken have been named among Lawdragon’s 2022 Global Leaders in Legal Strategy and Consulting for the fourth year in succession. The Kidd Aitken team has advised over 200 law firms across the globe, helping their clients achieve rankings in The Legal 500, Chambers and Partners and other prestigious legal directories.
