Power in our People

Meet the Leadership Team
 

Brent Guinn

Chief Executive Officer

After receiving his MBA from Vanderbilt University in 2001, Brent spent sixteen years in various senior Marketing and Executive Management roles in the Consumer Packaged Goods industry. His first post-MBA role was in Procter & Gamble’s world-renown Consumer & Market Knowledge group, where he developed a passion for developing products and campaigns driven by consumer insights.  He carried this passion to roles of increasingly larger scope leading brands and portfolios at ConAgra Brands and Abbott Laboratories.

Looking to use his consumer journey and marketing knowledge to help brands deliver great experiences in a new industry, Brent viewed the “journey” of a prospective student from optimistic high schooler to college student as a much higher-stakes version of the “consumer journeys” used in Consumer Packaged Goods. And within this world, it was clear that the visit itself was the ultimate moment of truth – for both university and student.
