Margaret Molloy

Global Chief Marketing Officer and Global Head of Business Development, Leadership, based in New York

Growing up on a dairy farm in rural Ireland, Margaret learned the value of hard work. She also came to understand the relationship between keeping promises, producing high-quality products and earning—and maintaining—an outstanding reputation. Much later she learned that these are the attributes of a successful brand.

Over the past 15 years, Margaret has developed a deep understanding of how to build great brands. She employs this expertise as the global head of marketing and business development at Siegel+Gale. By thinking strategically and delivering operationally, she executes innovative, breakthrough marketing campaigns that grow client satisfaction, firm revenues and team pride. Margaret’s digital expertise—particularly her knowledge of social media—helps companies increase marketing effectiveness and drive brand growth.

Before joining us, Margaret was chief marketing officer and partner at Velocidi, a next-generation digital agency where she was responsible for marketing and new business. She previously served as senior vice president of Marketing at Gerson Lehrman Group, the world’s leading expert network. Margaret also led marketing organizations at Siebel Systems—where she was a member of the Siebel Systems CEO’s Circle—and served as vice president of Marketing at Telecom Ireland US (eircom).

Margaret has been recognized as one the “Most Influential US-Irish American Leaders” by Business & Finance magazine and a “Top 100 Irish Americans in Business” by Irish America magazine. A captivating speaker with a delightful Irish brogue, she has led numerous panels and often presents at prestigious conferences and forums.
