Megan Rothery

Global VP , Aspectus

Aged just 26, the former Aspectus intern moved to New York, where she ended up running the North America office on an interim basis - undertaking huge projects including recruiting the new leadership, upskilling the team and leading development of a global client charter. She became part of a leadership duo that grew North America revenue 45 per cent and launched new offices in Austin and Washington. For the last year, Rothery has done all this from the UK - working US hours.

Nominator says: "This dedicated, dynamic and highly driven operator is an outstanding role model for anyone entering the industry"
