Brittany wears many hats essential to the daily function of InnovateMR’s business. She is responsible for developing and executing the global marketing strategy, maintains brand standards and ensures compliance across all marketing and communications channels, and bridges the gap between marketing and sales in order to cultivate long-term relationships with clients.

She is a published thought leader in the insights industry, contributing research-on-research to the advancement of social issues such as Imposter Syndrome. Brittany is a diversity and equity champion and leads the InnovateMR: Voices of Inclusion group dedicated to advancing workplace culture and inclusivity. She is fiercely dedicated to advocating for diverse leadership and fostering strong cross-culture communication.
“Brittany brings a depth of experience across the industry and is eager to jump in to support the Chapter’s efforts in 2023,” commented Kelly Kitchens, Senior Director of Product Marketing at Prodege and South Central Chapter President.
Additionally, Joseph Wylie, Director, Global Supply at Precision Sample, will step into the President-Elect position for 2023 and continue as the 2024 President. “Joseph's commitment is incredible,” Kitchens noted. “He continues to look for ways to make a positive impact.”
