Age: 29

Megan Treacher-Evans, Director – Head of Consumer and Corporate Practice, Weber Shandwick MENAT: Millie truly understands the power of communications to achieve impactful, objective-reaching, and award-winning campaigns.

Career highlights

From intern to Associate Director at Weber Shandwick in 7 years, I now lead a portfolio headlined by some of the world’s leading brands including Netflix, Uber, Chevrolet, GMC and more. I pride myself on solving clients’ business challenges with creativity and strategic focus, leading PR as part of an incisive, integrated marcomms team and have been recognized at both MEPRA and PRCA MENA.

I am a trusted and valued partner for my clients and have 100% client retention rate of accounts under my leadership.  By helping colleagues grow from executives through to manager level, I have retained my core team.

Guiding principles

Humanity is key to a happier and healthier environment. Often in a corporate setting, we can forget that we’re all people behind our company logos and job titles and, behind all the corporate jargon, the seemingly endless rounds of feedback or follow-ups, is a human who just wants to show up and do great work.

Side hustle

Experiencing the world in all its beauty and executions. I am a vociferous reader, a passionate traveler, a hungry consumer of arts and culture because it broadens the mind and opens new perspectives, especially when exploring an outlook from a contrary opinion to your own.
