Chief Operating Officer

Clara Mattucci is a lifelong persuasive communicator, rallying people around goals, causes and activities and bringing ideas to life. As chief operating officer at Slice Communications and a systems thinker, she supports effective delivery of client services and impact.

Clara’s skills and experience in writing, social research and conflict management have helped power behavior-changing public relations campaigns with the team at GillespieHall (GH), a Slice Communications Company for more than a decade, including 5 years in executive leadership. Key outcomes include strengthening the East Coast power grid, destigmatizing medical marijuana, and facilitating smooth leadership transitions, especially for family-owned businesses. Working closely with Bridget Paverd, GH founding partner, Clara has also supported clients in crisis communication and recovery and co-coached Wharton School MBAs in media and crisis response. 

Clara has lived and worked on three continents and travels to new places as often as possible. She serves on the Western Family YMCA advisory board and most mornings can be found in the pool or on the yoga mat. Clara reads voraciously, loves board games and outdoor adventures, and lives in Wilmington with her spouse, Jason, sister Asha, and two cats.
