Executive Leadership Support Forum: Assistant of the Week: New York City
Executive Assistant to SVP, Controller & SVP, Global Treasurer
TIME Inc., acquired by Meredith Corporation
Sue Grant is currently the Executive Assistant to the Controller of Time Inc., recently acquired by Meredith Corporation. Prior to her position at Time Inc. she was the administrative lead for the business development division in Conde Nast and before that ran a 15 person, $3M/year importation business in Brazil. Having lived in Iran, Brazil, Nigeria, Greece and the UK and as the mother of three children, she has ample experience bringing diverse teams together, building operational efficiencies and structure whilst maintaining a culture of humor across the organization. Her approach, in moving to a new country or a new team, has always been to build relationships and a common connection first and dive into all and any opportunities. In her spare time she can be found exploring the New York restaurant scene with her husband and attempting to work off the calories in the gym.
Sue will be one of the executive assistant contributors at the Executive Leadership Support Forum: New York City on June 27-28, 2018.
