Describing herself as an “innovation soldier” and social entrepreneur, Lefebvre Sarrut’s new Group Environmental, Social and Governance Impact Director, Camille Sztejnhorn, has built up wide-ranging experience in the media, consulting, publishing and social/environmental worlds. Starting her career in the media, Ms Sztejnhorn was a co-creator of Sofa magazine and head of web content, before becoming a client director for Mediametrie.

Since then, she has worked at Dalloz as Chief Marketing Officer and BU Director for Universities and Bookstores, and at the group’s headquarters as Group Innovation Director. In parallel, Ms Sztejnhorn is a lecturer at Paris-Panthéon-Assas University and a co-founder of Lutila, a start-up organizing team events with social and environmental purpose. She has also volunteered at charities including Emmaüs Alternatives (an association supporting vulnerable people) and Toits Vivants (urban farming). She’s a co-founding member of Les Jurisnautes, a non-profit organization creating moke trials to raise awareness on legal questions linked to new technologies. Ms Sztejnhorn is a graduate of Paris Cité University (in sociology), Sciences Po (media studies) and ESSEC Business School (marketing).
María de la O Martínez, a seasoned expert in technology development and partner relationships, will take over from Camille Sztejnhorn as Group Innovation Director. Ms de la O Martínez is a skilled team leader and has held a variety of business development, marketing, strategy and sales roles at international companies, mostly in the technology industry. She first worked as a product manager for Exact Software, Navision (Microsoft). Moving to Sage SP, she then occupied marketing and direct sales positions before becoming a group board member in her successive roles as Marketing Director, Professional Advisor Director and New Customer Acquisition Director. In 2018, she joined Lefebvre to head up product innovation in Spain and, since 2020, has been the Head of the Tax Market. In this latest role, she has been focused on supporting companies with business development, bringing considerable experience in helping accountants and lawyers improve their potential for transformation through customer- and market-centric digital changes. She is a graduate of Complutense Madrid University (in business studies) and IE Business School in Madrid (international executive MBA) and is currently participating in Esade’s Promociona Executive Program for Women in Senior Management.
