Women of emnos Series: Noémie Khobunthien
This week, we are featuring Noémie Khobunthien who is our FMCG Client Manager.
- Where did you start your career?
I started my career in a startup consulting firm called Lynx. They specialize in marketing cost efficiency optimization. My clients there were retailers in the apparel and beauty industry as well as food retailers. And before Lynx, I spent 6 months at Nestle for my graduation internship as Product Manager Assistant.
- When did you start at emnos? What brought you here?
I started at emnos in April 2014 as Client Expert. emnos offered the perfect combination of marketing oriented issues and a good deal of analytics in the retail industry that I knew and liked.
- What unique perspective does your experience bring to your leadership role and the company?
I think that my leadership is primarily based on my expertise as a consultant. My 5 years at emnos have made me a referent on analytical and project management issues for the team. I also think that my French-Japanese bicultural background has shaped the way I interact with clients and team members. I am always calm and looking for a solution that best suits all interests.
- What do you love most about your job?
I love being part of a driven, smart and joyful team. It challenges and motivates me. I also find the retail industry even more interesting than when I started my career 10 years ago. All the changes it is going through are very exciting.
- What advice would you give to your younger self?
Don’t be afraid to step out of the traced path. Find what you like and go get it!
