August 16, 2022

SAN FRANCISCO — Prophet, the leading growth and transformation consultancy, is continuing to strengthen its Organization and Culture practice in North America and EMEA by adding three new partners:  Paul Lambert, Michael López and Taryn Sessel. The new leaders’ considerable expertise will help Prophet’s clients unlock a human-centered approach to organizational transformation and support the extraordinary growth of this practice area in both regions.  

Paul Lambert, previously a senior partner at Korn Ferry, joins as a partner in the London office and will sit on the firm’s European leadership team. Lambert brings a wealth of experience in defining new operating models and reshaping workforces and has worked with organizations including the European Satellite Agency, a new European Wide Digital Real Estate Agency and the UK National Rail Operator. 

“Prophet’s holistic approach to redesigning organizations and driving purpose-led, organizational transformation is impressive,” said Lambert. “I look forward to helping our clients to successfully transform whilst getting fit for the future of work.” 

Michael López, previously a managing director at KPMG, joins Prophet as a partner in the San Francisco office. For over 20 years, Lopez has been helping clients accelerate transformational change through new processes, structures and cultures. He brings a diverse leadership style forged from his cross-industry consulting background, experience in the science of behavior change and his time coaching high-performing organizations and teams. 

“I’m thrilled to join Prophet and play a pivotal role in driving impact and meaningful change for our clients,” said López. “I am excited to help clients build cultures that can inspire new futures and possibilities for the organization.” 

Taryn Sessel, an expert in shaping and driving people-centric business strategies, joins as a partner in Prophet’s London office, where she will apply her extensive skills in talent management, change management, leadership advisory and organizational transformation. With more than 20 years of global human resources experience, Sessel – who previously held senior roles at Anglo American and Unilever – has helped organizations within the consumer goods and mining and extractive sectors thrive in radically changing environments and refocus to meet the demands of digital transformation, hybrid work and shifting ESG landscapes. 

“I am excited to join Prophet’s Organization and Culture practice,” said Sessel. “I believe people and culture are the keys to uncommon growth for organizations, and I look forward to helping our clients realize their transformative opportunities.”   

“We are thrilled to welcome Taryn, Michael and Paul to Prophet,” said Tony Fross, partner and Organization and Culture practice lead at Prophet. “The deep expertise and proven leadership brought by this group of talent will enable us to help more clients unlock uncommon growth and strengthen our position as a trusted ally for clients seeking to transform their organization and culture.”
