Workplace wellbeing industry leader is latest appointment in ongoing expansion.

30th April, 2024.

Workplace behaviour and culture specialists byrne·dean today announced experienced workplace and wellbeing industry leader Nick McClelland as Chief Executive Officer.

McClelland joins after 18 years consulting globally on employee benefits, culture, health, engagement and wellbeing, with roles at Thomsons Online Benefits (now Darwin) and Marsh McLennan. Most recently, he led workplace health platform Champion Health as Chief Growth Officer.

McClelland’s main priority will be leading the business forward through sustainable growth and creative innovation, including driving byrne·dean’s ongoing development of digital services to offer its clients.

Interim CEO Matt Dean returns to his role as Co-Founder, acting on the firm’s Board of Directors.

McClelland’s arrival is the latest milestone in the ongoing expansion of byrne·dean, following recent major hires to the firm’s Resolution and Strategy teams, and the appointment of a new Chief Operating Officer in Anna Arbuthnot.

The firm continues to expand its team and expertise to meet growing demand as workplaces everywhere face new challenges to their workplace dynamics; with societal, technological, and generational shifts developing at speed.

McClelland commented: “I am fascinated by workplace dynamics and relationships, and in particular the new, modern challenges they face as the world changes. byrne·dean is uniquely placed to address these challenges through a combination of legal expertise, a deep trust in human connection, and a strategic approach to often complex and emotive workplace issues. Our purpose is to create kinder, fairer workplaces that realise the potential of people and business - a natural alignment with my own purpose and values, and I’m incredibly excited to be a part of the team.”

Matt Dean, Co-Founder, byrne·dean commented: “We have found someone who cares as much about our purpose and our values as I do, and who's properly equipped to lead a work behaviour consultancy in a technology-driven age. I’m looking forward to seeing Nick and the fantastic team we have assembled around him creating those kinder, fairer workplaces.”
