Meet Claire Pelenc

Regional Director

Claire is the Regional Director for Athena North Surrey.

She has enjoyed a successful corporate career which includes the pharmaceutical industry, head hunting in the investment banking field, and working in the airline industry, and has also ran a successful home-based business over the last 9 years in Network Marketing. She has a wealth of experience in networking and loves supporting her members and other local women in business.

On discovering and joining The Athena Network almost 8 years ago, Claire was so impressed by the professionalism and great business connections that she made within her first year of membership, that  when the opportunity arose to purchase the successful the Athena Borough of Richmond territory, almost 7 years ago, she decided it was the right move for her as it fitted in with her international home-based business. (

Claire purchased the Athena North Surrey region one year later and developed 8 groups and ran 2 Cappuccino Connections.

After running the Richmond territory for 4 ½ years she sold to another great networker, Charmaine Mace and continues to run the Athena North Surrey region.

Claire works around a very busy family life. She has 2 boys aged 11 and 13 years who are both diagnosed with Autism and has been Parent Governor at their Special Needs School for the last 8 years.
