Lorraine Twohill runs Global Marketing at Google. Over the last ten years, her job has been to tell the evolving story of Google to the world. Lorraine strives to bring the magic of Google’s products to life in a simple way for users and customers.
Her team’s role spans all of Google’s products across the globe. From reminding people why they love Search to helping the world fall in love with a new browser called Chrome. From redefining the social conversation with Google+ and YouTube to pushing forward an entire ecosystem with Android. From helping small businesses get online and thrive to igniting the advertising industry, driving forward Google’s revenue. From letting kids design Doodles on the Google homepage to capturing and preserving the world's culture online, using technology as a force for good.
Lorraine joined Google from European travel site Opodo, first running Google’s European Marketing team before taking on her current global role. A proud native of Carlow, Ireland, she holds a joint honors degree in International Marketing and Languages from Dublin City University and has been nominated to their Alumni Roll of Honour. She is a member of The Board of Directors at Williams-Sonoma Inc. and two years ago was named Adweek's Grand Brand Genius.
