Recruitment & HRAppointments

The CEO of London-headquartered employee engagement company Reward Gateway has stepped down.

Doug Butler (pictured) leaves after more than six years with the firm, during which time it has built a global base of 4,000+ clients with more than 6.5 million of their employees using the platform.

“The team knows that this is a normal executive transition,” Butler wrote on LinkedIn. “The business is healthier than ever, is growing rapidly, and remains focused on our mission to make the world a better place to work. 

“I am personally happy and healthy and will remain a shareholder in the business, but more than anything today I feel blessed to have been working alongside such a talented and passionate group of individuals who have taught me so much.”

He will be replaced by Nick Burns, who joins the company from Arthur J. Gallagher & Co, where he served as CEO of Gallagher’s UK employee benefits consulting division. He has also previously served as CEO of PIFC Group, Bluefin Corporate Consulting and Capita Employee Solutions.

Reward Gateway says its all-in-one employee engagement platform delivers a streamlined, centralised yet flexible employee experience, empowering organisations to choose the right combination of wellbeing and engagement tools – from market-leading reward and recognition solutions, surveys and employee discounts – to attract and retain top talent.

“I am thrilled to join Reward Gateway as its new CEO,” said Burns. “This is a time of great global uncertainty, but nonetheless also a moment of real opportunity. I believe, now more than ever, leaders need to focus on the total wellbeing of their people as they build cultures of support, engagement and trust. 

“Reward Gateway helps companies all over the world strengthen their employee value proposition with solutions that truly support their wellbeing and engagement. I am very proud to now lead an organisation with such a clear mission and vision to make the world a better place to work.”

The firm’s clients include American Express, Unilever, Samsung, IBM and McDonald’s.
