Tell us about your career and time with Communisis

I’ve been working at Communisis for over 5 years now, first based in our Paris office and then moving to London.

I was originally recruited to join the newly deployed P&G account in France, as one of 2 project managers who were tasked with implementing the account. After a year I was promoted to the Team leader role where I managed a team of 5 people and focussed on growing the local account in collaboration with my peers in Europe.

With the expansion of our business, I then had the opportunity to engage on a central level, liaising with senior stakeholders and leading cross-markets projects. It was my first exposure to a proper international role and was a fantastic experience which helped me grow a lot.

When 4 years after joining Communisis I shared with my manager my wish to move to another account and to pursue in my career evolution, I was given the opportunity to join a new team as account director which was perfectly in line with my projected career path.

I am now responsible for the deliverables of my account, whether they are client-focussed, team-driven or financial, which is in perfect adequation with my aspirations at this point in my professional life.

 

What first attracted you to join Communisis?

I was attracted by the challenge of helping build a then-UK-focussed business in France and Europe.

My key question during the interview was about the mobility and opportunities in the company, and once I was assured that we were building a truly international business – as opposed to lots of local entities operating individually- with an embedded culture of talent management, I was sold.

 

What would you say your proudest moment at Communisis has been so far?

I think I am most proud of the first Quarterly Business Review (QBR) I did on my own in my new account. I then felt truly in charge, trusted by both my manager, my team and my client.

 

In your eyes, what makes Communisis a great place to work?

In Brand deployment, the accounts’ energy and the people’s enthusiasm are key to creating a great environment to work. Different accounts live side by side with the shared services, but there is truly the feeling of being one team. A combination of sharing, reapplying and close communication has helped drive best practices and provide cross-account support, which is invaluable.

 

What does the future hold for you?

Global domination… but failing that, transforming my account from middle- to heavy-weight and increasing my footprint in some of our newest markets eastward will do!
