Heather Malec

Head of Content

Using the power of social media and other distribution channels, my job is to tell and share great stories. (It really is the best job at Thoughtworks.)


In my current role, I look after our global social media strategy, exploring new distribution channels, and measuring the impact of our earned, paid and owned content.


I'm a collaborative and dynamic marketing communications leader with a global perspective. I've held senior marketing communications roles at The Newberry Library in Chicago and at Thoughtworks, and have worked in digital and PR roles at global accounting firms Grant Thornton and Arthur Andersen. I've also had my own social media consultancy focused on content marketing. Earlier in my career, I worked in Washington, D.C. in government relations.


I have a master of science in journalism from Northwestern University and a bachelor of science in public policy and environmental science from Indiana University.
