Press release, August 27, 2018

Marie Schnell Carlén has been working in marketing and advertising for over twenty years. Most recently, she was working at McCann Stockholm where she had been the CEO for the past four years. She will now be starting at Lynxeye as a Senior Client Director.

For a long time, Lynxeye has been at the top of the list of companies I have wanted to work for. Creating purpose-driven brand strategies is what I am most passionate about, so this job feels like a perfect match, says Marie Schnell Carlén, former CEO at McCann Sweden.

Besides her former role as CEO, Marie has worked as a strategic project leader with clients such as the Swedish bank SEB and telecom company 3, the bank Nordea in the Nordics as well as globally with medtech company Getinge.

As a Senior Client Director, I will come closer to the client’s business, which motivates me, says Marie Schnell Carlén.

Christian Ihre, co-founder and partner at Lynxeye, comments:

We believe that Marie has an exciting profile with senior experience of change management in large corporations both at a marketing and communications level. She will add experiences that we believe will be valuable in our work to create progress with purpose together with our clients.

I look forward to working with a team of experts creating brands and experiences that truly matter to people, business and society. In a time where traditional industries are being challenged by disruptive startups and global giants, more companies need to dare to challenge their own vision and offer to remain relevant and attractive for both employees and customers,” says Marie Schnell Carlén, who will be taking up her position on September 3rd.
