Prophet Welcomes Melissa Goldner as Partner to Enhance Organizational Change & Transformation Capabilities

February 3, 2021

NEW YORK – Prophet announced today that Melissa Goldner has joined the global consultancy as a partner in its New York office. Melissa will be joining Prophet’s organization & culture practice, applying her extensive expertise in organizational change and transformation to help our clients drive growth.

Melissa joins Prophet from Slalom Consulting, where she held various leadership roles in both account management and organizational effectiveness. She was known for helping clients “future-proof” their organizations – reinventing businesses from top to bottom. She has worked with clients across consumer goods, finance, insurance, media & entertainment, and more to drive organization-wide transformations, enhance digital collaboration, develop high-performing teams and implement new technologies.

“Joining a highly regarded global consultancy like Prophet made sense for me,” Melissa said. “With an amazingly talented team and client roster, Prophet is a place where I can act on my passion for inspiring and inventing new and more powerful spaces for people and companies to thrive.”

Prior to Slalom, Melissa enjoyed spending several years at Ogilvy & Mather where she had the opportunity to play multiple roles for different parts of the organization. She started as a Vice President for Impact, and employee engagement practice under Ogilvy’s Public Relations arm then was asked to partner in developing a new strategy practice in their Digital Group with the mission to identify, define and embed new core capabilities at the cutting edge of emerging areas to future-proof its customer engagement offering and enhance its sales/profit performance and long-term growth.

In her last role at the agency, she served as a Partner of Transformation where she helped transform the organization’s Diversity and Inclusion efforts, reimagining its strategy and programs to foster an environment in which all employees could contribute to their fullest potential.

“Melissa’s diverse background running transformation initiatives and developing large accounts, as well as her experience leading global Diversity and Inclusion programs, is exciting as we look to our leadership team to not only drive transformation for our clients but also internally at Prophet,” said Chiaki Nishino, President at Prophet. “We are confident she will make a substantial impact on our firm’s organization and culture capabilities as well as account development. We are very excited to have Melissa on board.”
