Where Clarity Grows

"Challenge yourself and strive to excel outside of your comfort zone."

Emily May

SVP, Strategy

How does this sound? As a strategic powerhouse with 10+ years in the industry, Emily specializes in seamlessly navigating complex business challenges and empowering teams with the sound research (see what we did there?) and solid strategic foundation necessary to achieve success. Sounds great, right? Just wait until you meet her.

Especially good at:
Leading teams, both in upstream innovation work as well as in traditional advertising and design, for a broad range of industries, including healthcare, beauty care and global CPG.

Favorite part of the work:
Finding consumer insights that change the course of the project in a big way. It’s exhilarating to learn that we should turn left instead of right—and that decision is clear and the rewards are imminent.

Alter ego:
A Mastermind (but not the evil kind). “I always have a plan or a scheme to make things work better, run smoother or help team members (including myself) think more clearly about the challenge at hand.”
