Susan Hanks
Senior Vice President, M/A/R/C Research

What was your biggest break?
I was 3 months pregnant when I moved to California, with some connections but no job offers. I had an interview [within a few days] and a job offer 2 days after that.

What's the best and/or worst part of your job?
The people I work with are the best part of my job. The hardest part is not being awarded a project when I feel we have a strong proposal.

Who is the person you admire most in your area of work?
Dr. Frank Wyman at M/A/R/C.  That is saying a lot because over the years I have worked with a lot of great people.

What's the view like from your office/work area?
From my 4th floor window, I can see rows and rows of treetops.

Does your office have a favorite lunch and/or after-hours place?
Monasi (Brazilian buffet) and San Juan's (Mexican)

Where did you go to college?
University of Pennsylvania BA and University of Chicago MBA

Where will you be in five years?
Expect to be at M/A/R/C doing pretty much what I do now.
