Sue Unerman

Chief Transformation Officer


In a world that is changing faster than any of us can quite get used to, business needs people who can not only see the next change coming, but can also explain it to the rest of us. Sue is one of these rare people. She’s a “clarifier”.

In a time when companies that stand still are sunk, Sue has consistently moved MediaCom forwards ahead of the competition – a crucial factor in its rise to become the number one company in its sector and the most awarded agency in the world.

In her current role she drives transformation for MediaCom and their clients.

Sue has for many years transcended her natural introversion to take her place as an ad industry spokesperson at conferences and forums. This year she has reached out to a wider public with the publication of her book The Glass Wall – the year’s most significant addition to the debate on gender diversity at work.

Sue has an advice column in Grazia on #winningatwork.

She blogs at www.sueunerman.com and is co-host of the MediaCom Connected Podcast. This year she was included in the inaugural FT Heroes list for women who have championed gender equality at work for the second year in a row, and designated as one of the Female Lead’s inaugural 20 in data.
