Brinn’s Story

From Art to Business

Having been classically trained in Fine Arts, I entered the music industry and spent 5 years acting as liaison between artists and stakeholders. From Artist Management to Network Operations to resource allocation, I coordinated internal assets to implement the artist’s creative vision and developed a cross-platform campaign to optimize the artist’s reach and success, culminating in a “breakout” album. The artist, Chromeo, has released multiple albums since, and is now a globally recognized artist. 

A Culture of Growth

I next entered an early stage startup developing data-driven B2B solutions. As the 6th hire on the team, I was in a position to design and implement the foundations of a robust company culture. I led the HR team to onboard over 100 new employees, from entry-level to partner/principal, all while creating a sense of community and teamwork. Having worked with leadership to recruit and train new hires, we were able to scale up this organizational structure and maintain a solutions-driven, forward thinking culture of collaboration through various office changes and growth phases. 

Creativity in Technology

In my recent role as Chief Strategy Officer at Videri, Inc, I worked with the CEO to streamline operations and refine the organizational structure of a multinational technology firm. Coordinating strategy, technology and creativity, I guided the CEO and HR staff in creating operational utilities and defining procedural systems that support data-driven decision making and company vision.

Daring leadership is leading from heart.”

With a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts, I continue to nurture my creative outlets and create art in various forms.

Leadership Philosophy

CURATE TALENT FOR SUCCESS

Culture is about people, and people are more than line items or performance reviews. An office environment that fosters innovation and empowers individuals is invaluable for companies large and small. When employees feel comfortable and motivated, the company vision is infused in every action item. Attracting and retaining talent is critical for growth-oriented companies, and investing in culture and leadership creates the space that maximizes employee satisfaction and individual potential. Beyond the numbers, human resources and culture manifest the core of the company’s brand. Transparency and consistency in achievements, standards, roles, and vision are fundamental ingredients of a forward-thinking company culture. 

CULTURE: WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER

My leadership style emphasizes the power of authenticity and emotional intelligence. There is always uncertainty in onboarding and company vision can easily get lost in the chaos of rapid growth. Data-driven decision making is critical for intelligent planning, but equally important is the need to translate realistic expectations in a human way. Through straightforward communication, strategic planning, and role definition, an effective company culture can reflect a realistic understanding of corporate vision and inspire confidence at all levels of the organization. Culture comes from the top, and leadership has a responsibility to balance direction and support without stifling innovation. 

KEEP IT HUMAN-CENTRIC

In this modern landscape, companies must harmonize the efficiency of technology with the humanity of their employees. Instead of suppressing human tendencies to compete with machinery, I believe that we can enhance the advantages of human nature in the workplace through communication, teamwork, and empathy. When I transitioned from classical training in visual arts to corporate development and strategy, I translated my understanding of emotions and the human form into the coordination of human behavior and psychology. With this perspective, I create the human-driven operational models that prioritize community culture, connecting people with leadership and with each other.

THINK CREATIVELY

Strategic Planning considers the existing resources and objectives and seeks to adapt the company vision to external circumstances. From hiring, to retaining, to developing human resources, a successful strategy develops the system that enables day-to-day inspiration for innovative thinking. Real innovation requires an environment that empowers the human mind to think creatively.  If individual talent is feeling bored or underappreciated, productivity declines and innovation is stifled. Human psychology cannot thrive when people feel manipulated or are subject to fear-based tactics, and real innovation requires an environment that empowers the human mind to think creatively. As a strategic officer, I consider the impact of supporting creativity in a human way through teamwork, inspiration, and chemistry with leaders and with fellow employees.
