Biography[edit]

Grégoire gained a bachelor's degree in history from Paris-Nanterre University. She then graduated from Sciences Po in 2001, the same year as Emmanuel Macron, and completed a master's degree in marketing at ESSEC Business School in 2002.[2]

From 2002-5 she worked for the press office of Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin, and from 2005-7 as an adviser and strategist for Health Minister Xavier Bertrand.[3][4] Between 2007 and 2014 she worked in communications and marketing for the multinational companies DDB Worldwide, Havas and Saint-Gobain, and for the government communications agency Etalab. She founded Olicare, a communications and strategy consultancy, in 2014.[4]

She joined Emmanuel Macron’s En Marche! movement in March 2016, a month before it was publicly launched, and was involved in designing the movement’s policies on health-care.[2] In the 2017 legislative elections she was elected with 56.36% of the vote, defeating Philippe Goujon of The Republicans.[5]

Grégoire is currently a spokesperson for the parliamentary group of La Republique en Marche! and is a member of the Finance Commission (Commission des Finances), a parliamentary committee that scrutinizes public spending.[6]
