Feminist Product Maker & Creative Director

founder of Where are the boss ladies & secret code

Hi, I'm Mara Lecocq. I’ve worked for 13 years in New York, Toronto and Paris creating and leading awareness campaigns with a digital focus for brands like Starbucks, Nike, Verizon, McDonald’s, Evian. I am a leader, a conceptual thinker and a doer. Comfortable managing and inspiring teams, but also coming up with unique and strategic ideas with impeccable execution in design, copy, photography and motion.

On the side, I’ve been passionate about bringing diversity to male-dominated industries by providing women empowering role models. ✨I inspire little girls to get interested in technology with Secret Code, a customizable children's book that stars *your* girls as a tech hero. ✨I inspire women to remain in advertising, with Where Are The Boss Ladies, a list of female executives women can work for.

I cannot speak more highly of Mara Lecocq. She is a true inspiration and the most hard-working person I know. She is not only an amazing creative but also a caring teacher and leader.
