Molly Wayner

Director, Communications

As a trained journalist and a specialist in high-volume report process management and operations, Molly Wayner is responsible for helping to ensure the quality, accuracy and timeliness of the firm’s reports and other written collateral. Since joining the firm in 2009, she has supported several hundred projects for clients across multiple industries and sectors.

Molly has an eye for detail. As Director, she focuses on applying the firm’s style and voice to all client deliverables, as well as marketing collateral such as case studies and blog posts. Molly is involved in all stages of an engagement from working with the in-house subject-matter experts to creating first drafts of reports – including writing content and formatting and laying out pages – to doing extensive editing and proofreading, as well as finalizing reports for submission to clients. She is responsible for coordinating and project managing the development of complex, multi-author reports for strategic and sensitive engagements and products.

Molly has, for example, edited and finalized the results of high-volume due diligence investigations for branded clients in the professional sports industry and Fortune-ranked enterprises; supported the company’s Senior Vice Presidents with researching and crafting early drafts of strategic security assessments and executive protection planning reports; and helped execute key facets of the company’s social media strategy.

Before joining Hillard Heintze, Molly worked on a variety of media platforms including writing and producing feature-length stories concerning illegal immigration in southwestern Ohio for an NPR-affiliate and contributing to a central Indiana newspaper’s 40th anniversary coverage of a natural gas explosion. As editorial assistant for About Campus, she developed story ideas and sought notable professors from universities across the U.S. to contribute articles or book reviews to the magazine.

Molly graduated from Miami University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism and history.
