VaynerMedia’s —and for that matter— first ever Chief Heart Officer, Claude Silver fuses empathy with agency to unlock employee potential and foster a culture of belonging. Between her education in psychology, years as an advertising strategist, and time at Vaynermedia, she’s been studying and influencing human behavior for over three decades. Outside of VaynerMedia, she speaks globally about the need for heart-leadership in today’s workplace and the importance of treating “employees” like people, not numbers. Her success guiding client relationships, global brand strategies, operations, management, and culture is driven by an abiding passion for creating spaces in which people can thrive.
Prior to VaynerMedia, Claude held leadership positions at a handful of large advertising agencies both in the US and UK. She founded and ran an outdoor adventure & surf company in San Francisco where she was in the cold Pacific Ocean coaching 275 days a year. Simply put, her glass is always full!
