Claire Molyneaux

Co-CEO, Publicis Emil

Hello! My name is Claire Molyneux and I’m a parent of two Elementary students at Marymount Paris. I’m British, but I’ve been living and working in Paris for just over three years. What’s my job? Well, after studying History and German at St. Anne’s College, Oxford, I started my career as an Assistant Brand Manager at Procter and Gamble (P&G) UK. P&G is the manufacturer of many of the world’s most loved Brands – Pampers, Ariel, Gillette, Always, Oral-B, Aussie, Head and Shoulders, Vicks and many others. My career at P&G took me all over the world to Switzerland, France, Israel and Nigeria, talking to people and finding persuasive ways to advertise and grow our brands. I love advertising and after 15 years I decided to join an advertising agency, Saatchi & Saatchi, part of the Publicis Groupe – a company which is made up of some of the biggest technology, data, media and advertising networks in the communications industry. It’s been 5 years since I joined and I’ve worked with the makers of many products you’ll know including Oreos, Nescafé, Toyota and Häagen-Dazs and most recently, with a good friend, I’ve built an agency called Publicis Emil to help Mercedes-Benz transform their digital marketing. Today, we’re 600 Emilians in over 41 countries! I’ve always been passionate about helping young talent to grow and make an impact, so I’m really looking forward to meeting you all and supporting you on your mission to serve the communities you are part of.
