Engineer Turned Strategist

When the opportunity to hone Nwanyinma’s newly formed strategic skillset came up with Publicis Sapient, it felt like the right choice for her to make.

To be honest, before 6 months ago, I had never heard of Publicis Sapient. 

I am an engineer turned strategist. I started my career in big pharma, first as a vaccine process development engineer and then as a procurement specialist for external manufacturing. After 7 years, I left for business school then transitioned to consulting, seeking to build my business acumen and work on the problems closest to the C-suite. After having a chance to do just that but in various industries and disciplines, I sought new opportunities to join my newly honed strategic skillset with my love and domain expertise in healthcare and pharma. 

"When approached by a recruiter, I was intrigued by the Publics Sapient model – digital business transformation powered by best-in-class strategy, experience, and engineering."

When approached by a recruiter on the Management Consulting team earlier this year, I was intrigued by the Publics Sapient model – digital business transformation powered by best-in-class strategy, experience, and engineering. I jumped into the interview process and was excited by the impact and tangibility of what Publicis Sapient was delivering to its clients and the entrepreneurial spirit of the management consulting team. Publicis Sapient’s pipeline of healthcare and pharma work was also attractive because I knew this was the type of work I wanted to continue pursuing.

Publicis Sapient has delivered on its promise to me during the interview process – a chance to work in healthcare and pharma. My first project was a great “Power of One” example where a diverse team across Publicis supported a pharma client in standing up digital commercial capabilities for the launch of a new vaccine.

It’s satisfying to sincerely say my future here is bright and I love what I get to do. Here’s to following your curiosity and trying something new; the payoff can be huge!
