Suzanne is the chief diversity officer at Splunk since August 2018. She began her career at a big four management consultancy firm working with clients in multiple industries in London and across Europe. She then moved to the Bay Area consulting at high-tech companies and discovered her passion for diversity and inclusion and the next chapter of her career.

Suzanne is a dynamic diversity and inclusion leader who has a passion for sourcing, engaging and developing talent to drive a culture of performance. She believes that future organizations will only be successful if they are able to include, harness and unleash the power of diverse teams.
