The first part of my career was rooted in project management and technology. As a green consultant, I learned how to solve real world business problems with the application and preservation of cutting edge technologies. I managed projects ranging from start-up websites to strategic repositionings. I led teams that helped clients to grow, whether is was from a revenue, customer, or internal workflow perspective.
The second phase of my career was devoted to brand management. My objective was to ensure a company’s greatest asset was their brand(s). I worked with companies both big and small to set them apart from their competitors by not only influencing the brand’s perception, but also to present opportunities to take the brand to the next level.
The third and current part of my career evolution is all of the above with an entrepreneurial edge. I am inspired by creating movement. Brylson Brand Solutions is a manifestation of such movements. We pledge to help organizations find their BRAND VOICE and connect it to the world, loud and clear.
