Kim R. Powell


For nearly twenty years, Kim has applied her passion for helping people to her role as a trusted advisor to CEOs and high potential leaders, first at the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and now at ghSMART.

Her passion for people was sparked in high school in Atlanta, Ga where a deep sense of service was embedded into her definition of success. She then flew the coop and headed to complete a BA from the University of Notre Dame and an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management. After beginning her career advising senior leaders of Fortune 500 companies in the areas of driving transformational change and corporate strategy with BCG in Chicago, she found herself navigating back to Atlanta. While there, Kim had global oversight for BCG's Change Management practice, which spanned topic strategy creation and execution, expert cadre development, intellectual capital creation, training program creation and delivery, and knowledge management and dissemination. She is the author of several publications related to leading during change and change management on BCG Perspectives.

After roughly fifteen years with BCG, Kim joined ghSMART and serves leading Fortune 500 senior executives, private equity firms and non-profit leaders in the areas of management assessment, leadership coaching and organizational change. She co-leads ghSMART's research on first time CEO's and is passionate about supporting leaders in accelerating their effectiveness in new roles. Kim enjoys getting out of the city to hike with her two exuberant children and husband.
