She will retain her position as COO of the joint venture in addition to her new role.
Shuman completed a dual Global Executive MBA program through Columbia University and the London Business School, and graduated with Distinction from St. Petersburg University of Economics and Finance, Russia, with a BS in Finance. She will continue to be based in Singapore, but will be spending time at Kelly's Swiss headquarters with her EMEA leadership team.
