Myzone is excited to welcome ex-Nike brand leader and former international hockey player, Kerry Williams, to the team as its new chief marketing officer with immediate effect.
Having just returned to work following the birth of her second girl, Williams joins Myzone to drive its next stage of growth and development around the world.
The wealth of Williams’ sporting experience has seen her earn World Cup, Commonwealth Games and European Championship medal wins from a 96-cap England and GB international sporting career. During her 12 years with Nike, Williams embraced leadership and growth through roles including training brand director, head of brand events and global football brand manager.
No stranger to start-up and scale opportunities, Williams also consulted across businesses such as Marchon, WIT, ATHX, Studio 6, the Training Club and Herd Brands.
“We searched for a rockstar CMO and we have certainly found one,” explained Dave Wright, the CEO of Myzone. “Kerry’s experience and approach fits perfectly with the team, and is exactly what we need for the future. Throughout the exhaustive process, where every applicant for the position was to such a high standard, she’s exceeded expectations and risen above. We’re so excited to have Kerry on board to help transform the Myzone brand to be better able to communicate the fabulous benefits of physical activity, heart rate training and innovative technology to our wonderful community across 92 different countries.”
A big advocate for equality, diversity and inclusion, Williams is also the trustee of Badu Sports, a charity using the power of sport to change the lives of underprivileged communities across London, with a passion for getting people moving.
“My career to date has focused around making movement accessible, engaging and inspiring for all,” said Williams. “Myzone provides connected fitness solutions, wearable technology and supportive communities to achieve just that, helping people all around the world to move, whether they’re just getting started, trying to reach a health and wellness goal or hitting peak performance. Promoting movement based on personal effort is the unlock to a healthy happier world, and I am beyond excited to ensure this belief is felt across every marketing touchpoint. I cannot wait to see what our collective effort can achieve in the coming years.”
