Michelle Broderick
Michelle Broderick

CMO

Untitled Startup

Michelle is known for blending creative ideas with deep data to create campaigns that go further than money can buy. She began her career focusing on data-driven loyalty marketing programs at Fortune 500 companies like Continental Airlines, and Gap Inc., where she crunched big data (before big data was a thing), ran multi-million dollar campaigns, and learned the discipline and creativity required to run global marketing efforts. After finding success in corporate America, she was ready for a completely different challenge. She made the leap to the exciting world of startups as an early employee at Yelp, Uber, and Simple where she led teams of scrappy marketers who used creativity and determination to turn those companies into household names. Michelle earned a Bachelor's Degree in business at WWU with a focus on two seemingly antithetical disciplines: marketing and computer science. Fortunately, making data and creativity work together like peanut butter and jelly turned out to be great fun and absolutely critical to the success of modern marketing campaigns. Michelle has remained on the leading edge, searching for new things to learn and continuing her education in executive leadership at Stanford and behavioral economics at Yale.
