Nathalie has three things The Gate has always wanted in a business development person: intelligence, experience and a legitimate French accent.
In terms of intelligence, Nathalie has earned post-graduate degrees in both psychology and organizational behavior. And she puts them to good use in advertising. Because they not only help her understand the tactical needs of companies, they also help her understand the psychological aspects that connect brands to consumers.
With that background, it’s not surprising her résumé is so eclectic. Over the years, she’s helped sports marketing icon Wieden + Kennedy break into the beauty category with the addition of Avon, created international partnerships for G.H. Mumm Champagne and marketed one of the most successful independent movies of all time: The Usual Suspects.
French accent: Well, she’s French. But she has honed her English by marrying an American and having two children with him. Together, they live in a 200-year-old house in Connecticut. With French country furnishings, of course.
