One word might leap to mind when you take in Susan McPherson, director of global marketing atFenton, the large public interest communications firm: “Pollyannaish.”
Consider the evidence: McPherson directs corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs for Fenton’s clientele, helping organizations launch projects such as providing relief to flood victims or promoting recycling. Cheerfully bright clothing drapes her petite frame, and she speaks in a youthful voice, with a charming habit of regularly referring to people by first name. On her office whiteboard, she has saved a large drawing of a flower in red and purple markers, a playful memento from her partner Fabien Cousteau, grandson of iconic oceanographer and explorer Jacques-Yves Cousteau.
