“My specialty is creating momentum for businesses using research, storytelling and a combination of targeted internal and customer facing actions. There’s nothing more satisfying than finding a creative solution to a tough problem that motivates the business, gets their customers excited, and can scale as they grow,” says Hodgson. “We have some important projects in the works that require our clients, and us, to experiment and embrace the opportunity in change. I’m so proud to be leading this team and of the work we’re doing with our clients.”
