An expansive job role at Schneider Electric

Schneider Electric Chris Leon

After joining Schneider Electric in 2012, Asia-Pacific marketing veteran Chris [pictured above] was named global CMO and ExCo member in 2015.

It is a role that gives Chris a broader remit than most, including brand impact, marketing engagement, digital customer experience, communications and sales operations - but also reflects her years of experience, which have included senior marketing and business leadership roles. 

At Schneider Electric, for example, Chris previously led a high growth area across the region, while at her previous posting at Nokia, she oversaw the company’s operations across China, Japan and Korea after earlier serving as global marketing Senior Vice President, complete with a $1bn budget. 

Chris made the shift to client side after more than a decade with advertising agencies in Asia. As she has said in previous interviews, Schneider Electric is “the world’s biggest invisible brand”, helping Chris articulate the company’s Life is On positioning, while also overseeing a global operation that aims to properly communicate the company’s sustainability credentials.

Further recognition for her industry influence

Recognition from PRovoke Media comes soon after a similar accolade from Forbes, where Chris was named to a list of World’s Most Influential CMOs
