Molly Walsh

overview

Molly was born in Ireland and raised in Cambridge. She graduated with a degree in Economics and Politics from the LSE. Before joining True, she worked at The Hut Group in Manchester where she managed trading for one of their US brands. When not working, you can probably find her overheating on the Victoria line with golf clubs in hand, ready to shoot one hundred and something.

Why did you choose True?

I applied to True because I wanted to continue working within the retail and consumer sector, but I took the job because I was so impressed by the warmth and intelligence of the people I met throughout the interview process.

How would you describe your job to a five-year-old?

I work with shops to make it easier for you to buy the perfect toy.

What do you love most and least about your job?

I love being able to ponder what the future of retail will look like and to then get the opportunity to connect our partners to technology startups whose mission is to bring us closer to that vision of the future. There’s nothing I dislike about my job, although the drilling next door sucks.

Name an idea or company that reimagined a business or industry — one you wish you’d thought of.

Deciem (the parent company of The Ordinary) has done a great job of transforming the skincare industry from a place littered with ‘miracle gold elixirs’ to an ingredient-led sector with far less BS.

Which person or people helped shape and inspire who you are today?

It would have to be my parents. They raised my five siblings and me. If I could have even a fraction of their grit, I think I’d be doing pretty well.
