CHICAGO — April 26, 2017— Navigant (NYSE: NCI) today announced Lee Spirer has assumed a new role for the company as executive vice president and chief growth and transformation officer. Spirer joined Navigant in 2012 as the executive vice president and global business leader, responsible for business performance and leading operations across the company.
Lee has been an integral part of Navigant’s transformation into becoming a more integrated, global consulting and services firm,” said Julie Howard, Navigant chairman and CEO. “Building on Navigant’s solid foundation and track record of consistent performance, I believe Lee is the right leader to help us accelerate our strategies to ensure we are able to meet clients where they need us most: at the intersection of risk and transformation.
In this new role, Spirer will work with corporate and business leadership to refine Navigant’s long-term strategy and revenue growth initiatives with an emphasis on pairing the company’s deep industry expertise with new investments in digital capabilities. Spirer will lead strategy and corporate development and the company’s go-to-market efforts, including marketing, sales, and business development. He will also oversee innovation for client solutions, including enhanced digital capabilities and leveraging global delivery capabilities.
As a company, we are proud of how we have evolved our business and realigned our resources to achieve growth; however, I believe the creation of this new role is evidence of how Navigant is never satisfied and is always committed to creating greater value for our clients,” said Spirer. “The design and development of high-impact solutions that leverage our global scale, industry acumen, and innovative capabilities are strategic priorities for the company that will guide current and future investments.
Prior to joining Navigant, Spirer was engaged as an advisor and operator to a number of private equity firms and held a broad base of general management and strategic leadership roles in business services, data, and technology companies, including senior positions at Kroll, Dun & Bradstreet Corporation, IBM, and Booz Allen & Hamilton.
