Best consultants

Deborah Nash

Deborah Nash, CEO, Brussels


My Job

I lead the Teneo Brussels office and work with colleagues locally and across the globe to help our clients identify, understand and navigate regulatory and reputational challenges, and opportunities, that have a critical impact on their business or sector. I also lead the overall development of the office, including our internal connectivity and our local people and talent strategy.

My Experience

I’m a lawyer by training, and started my career in a UK law firm before moving to a Brussels-based NGO and from there into consultancy.

My Proudest Achievements

Taking on the CEO role of an office that I “grew up” in professionally over the past 14 years. The company, and the role I play, has changed beyond all recognition since I took my first tentative steps as a Consultant back in 2007 but I’ve enjoyed it every step of the way. Teneo’s growth is far from finished, and I’m excited to play a leading role as our team and offering expands in Brussels and beyond.

My Education

  • Queen’s University, Belfast, LLM Human Rights and Humanitarian Law
  • Queen’s University Belfast, LLB, Law
  • Université Catholique de Louvain, Erasmus, Law

My Languages

English and French.

My Interests outside work

Travelling, near and far and as often as possible, and spending time with good friends (and a good glass of wine).
