Elizabeth Chambers took on her role at Western Union six months ago. She has a position on the board and leads strategy, product, marketing and communications. She previously worked at international law firm Freshfields, which won a number of industry awards and is cited by The Lawyer as one of the top 10 legal advisers to European IPOs. A former McKinsey consultant keen to spread her knowledge, Chambers is involved in mentoring other marketers and notes that today’s industry professionals must develop expertise that will make them stand out, as well as being numerate and a stickler for facts.
