We are excited to announce that Chris Grams has joined New Kind as President and Partner. Chris has over 15 years of experience in the communications field, including 10 years at Red Hat
, the world’s leading open source software company. The open source way—including themes like openness, collaboration, transparency, community, and meritocracy—are key influences in his work, a perfect fit with New Kind.
At Red Hat, Chris played a key role in building the brand and culture, most recently in the role of Senior Director, Brand Communications + Design. During his time there, the company grew from about 150 employees in one office in North Carolina to an S&P 500 business with almost 4,000 employees and over 55 offices around the world.
Look for Chris to blog on brand, community, and culture, here at New Kind and on Dark Matter Matters.
