Contact Melanie Newton


Mel joined Baringa Partners in 2015 to build the Organisation and People practice which has been developing over the last few years across all our industry groups. Mel has over 20 years’ consulting experience in organisation and people change, having started her career in technology consulting and seeing first-hand the heavy impact of forcing technology and process change on an unengaged workforce.

Mel has a passion for leading people through change. She has global experience in shaping and leading change programmes to deliver planned business outcomes. Building on her wide experience of management consulting, Mel has focused on change management, culture and behaviours and organisation design and target operating model design resulting from the market challenges faced by our clients, including cost reduction,  M&A, expansion into new markets / geographies and implementation of new technology.   Mel also has a reputation for leading large programmes with a relentless focus, engaging effectively with leadership teams, programme teams and employees at all levels. 

Mel is a keen advocate of the diversity and inclusion agenda and takes an active role in this aspect of life at Baringa. Outside work, she spends her time split between London and Hampshire, when not travelling further afield. She is very keen on the arts: galleries, theatre and film and also enjoys horse riding and running, tempered with an active interest in sampling good food and wine.
