Goodway Group has named Kandi Gongora as the Chief Transformation & People Officer who will increase the company's growth. 

FREMONT, CA: Goodway Group, the digital partner advertisers trust to provide campaign performance and media efficiency, has appointed Kandi Gongora as the Chief Transformation & People Officer. Kandi's new responsibilities include accelerating company growth as a top full-service Digital Agency by guaranteeing the organization maintains relevant, innovative, and industry-leading standards as the world of work and the business landscape continue to evolve and transform.

As Chief Transformation & People Officer, Gongora will manage the whole organization's brand messaging by taking a cross-functional approach to people, data, and infrastructure, helping to ensure a seamless transformation across the organization. Gongora will be responsible for employee experience, the Center of Excellence, sales operations, internal communications, and business and organizational strategy. While monitoring Goodway's international arm, CvE, she also maintains a global perspective. This position will foster collaboration, cohesion, and communication among all functions and employees.

"When exploring existing titles such as Chief Operating Officer and Chief People Officer, I realized these titles didn't fit the gap I was looking to fill. When I really thought about what the next iteration of people experience and organizational excellence would be, I knew that a Transformation officer was really the way of the future," said Gongora. "Moving forward, as we adapt and change to a post-pandemic world, we will have to look at things differently and transform in life and as organizations. With compassion as my guide, I'm excited to drive change as CTPO."

"We are thrilled to see Kandi take on the new Chief Transformation & People Officer position, an important role that we believe will emerge across industries," said Jay Friedman, President of Goodway Group. "Kandi is well respected amongst her colleagues and the leadership team and has a passion for working with others to create new experiences that push Goodway Group forward. As a fully remote organization, we need leaders who can connect with our employees through any and all mediums, and Kandi is that person. With her at the helm of our people and organizational operations, I'm confident that Goodway Group will continue to rapidly grow with one of the best teams and company cultures in the business."
