Innosight, a strategy and innovation consulting firm, announced today that Scott D. Anthony has been named its new Managing Partner, succeeding Matt Eyring.

Matt Eyring, the departing Managing Partner of Innosight, will be joining Vivint, the largest home automation company in North America. Headquartered in Provo, Utah, Eyring will serve as Vivint’s Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer, leading the organization’s directional growth initiatives. In addition, Eyring will continue to be affiliated with the firm as an Innosight Fellow, a network of innovation and strategy thought leaders.
“I’m excited to lead Innosight at a time when there is a tremendous appetite and need for new approaches to achieving growth,” says Anthony. “Our combination of outstanding talent, rigorous methodologies, and focus on delivering real impact will continue to position us to be the partner of choice for enterprises seeking to innovate, grow, and ultimately transform. We are sad to say goodbye to Matt Eyring, whose leadership and energy has helped the firm experience such strong growth in the past few years. It will be very exciting to watch what he accomplishes at Vivint in his new role. ”
