Jim Keane takes on global leadership role at Steelcase

Wednesday 31 October 2012

Steelcase executive Jim Keane has been promoted to take the mantle of chief operating officer. Keane has previously served as president of the Steelcase Group in the Americas, Europe, Middle East and Africa, as well as earlier company roles as chief financial officer and the head of research and development.
"The global business environment is changing at a rapid pace," said CEO Jim Hackett. "It's crucial that Steelcase accelerate the implementation of its current strategic plan, while also staying ahead of the trends that are shaping the future state of our business. With Jim in this expanded role, I am confident that Steelcase will continue to serve the world's leading organizations, to help them use space as leverage for their own success, and to remain at the forefront of what's next in the world of business."
As COO, Keane will be responsible for the design, engineering, development, manufacturing, sales and distribution of the company's brands in the nearly 160 countries. The Grand Rapids-based office furniture maker sells products and services for corporate, healthcare and education organizations.
"I've had the pleasure of working with Jim Hackett for 15 years, and I'm honored to take a role that allows Jim to devote more of his time to envisioning our future direction," said Keane. "Throughout its 100-year history, Steelcase has maintained the unwavering ability to stay focused on both the present and on the horizon. We want to continue to ride our current momentum as we anticipate what's next in the world of work."
Prior to joining Steelcase in 1997, Keane was a consultant with McKinsey and Company for five years and held positions with Peat Marwick Mitchell and Co. and Motorola Inc.
Keane earned a bachelor of science degree in accountancy from the University of Illinois, and a master's in management degree from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University.
