Florence Maisel

Managing Partner

Florence advises senior-level executives of major multinational companies and helps them navigate the complex French political and institutional ecosystems. She works with them to preserve their freedom to operate and leverage all potential opportunities to advance their business interests and reputation. Florence has worked on opening the French market to new products and breakthrough technologies in different sectors – such as agriculture or energy – often associated with societal challenges. She loves nothing more than difficult challenges.

Florence started the Paris Interel office in the late 80s, which made her at that time one of the pioneers of professional lobbying in France. She was privileged to have international blue-chip clients from day one which allowed her to rapidly develop a high profile practice. She co-founded the French professional association of lobbying consultants (AFCL) a few years later.

Before joining Interel, Florence worked for a political consultancy, where she handled a number of political campaigns. Prior to that role, she had started her career as a management consultant in one of the big five consulting companies.

Florence graduated from Science Po Paris. She is a fluent English and Spanish speaker, in addition to her native French.  She is married and the mother of two daughters.
