Summary

Lucile Bonal
If I am not busy with work, you will find me traveling, on a soccer field or gardening.
I grew up in a small town of south west France near Bordeaux. From as long as I can remember, I always felt this longing and curiosity to travel the world and discover other cultures.

After graduating from college, I spent a year in the US and fell in love with its people and way of life, before returning to France, where , I spent the first part of my professional career in the Insurance and Pharmaceutical industries.

However, my longing and curiosity for the US never faded, so finally seventeen years ago, I took a leap of faith and decided to leave France, become an entrepreneur, and take a chance at the American dream. My career just grew from there and I quickly became the jack of all trades for various companies. In my last role as Marketing Manager, I was leading marketing initiatives while delivering financial results in a global organization.

On a personal note, I am a family person - my husband and two boys are my anchor – and my ultimate goal is to build a harmonious family life.

During my free time, I find ways to improve the community by volunteering for a non-profit that teaches French to school children and maintains France’s cultural heritage (Association des Petits Ecoliers de Miami) . I also volunteer at school and I am Team mom at the soccer club. I am active and I spend my weekends biking, working on home improvement projects or gardening. I also (try) to be the singer of our family garage band.

I am now ready to take a position that will allow me to use my expertise while having a real impact in an organization.
I am looking for roles such as Marketing manager, Marketing Specialist, Channel Manager, Market Analyst, Finance Operations Analyst or any other marketing or customer assistance related roles.
