Brie Rangel VP of Services, 10+ Years of Digital Marketing Experience

From blogging before inbound marketing was a term, to newsjacking before that was coined by David Meerman Scott,  to implementing scrum before agile marketing took off, Brie has been at the epicenter of today’s most influential marketing strategies.

Upon her graduation from the University of Missouri School of Journalism, she took her knowledge and natural know-how and applied it as a Strategist for 10 years developing award-winning marketing campaigns for clients ranging from small nonprofits to large enterprise organizations.

She now leads IMPACT’s services division, keeping her ears on the ground for the latest marketing strategies and tactics we should be offering for our clients and guiding her team to reach new levels every day. In addition to her marketing background, Brie is an emerging leader on a quest to grow and share what she learns along the way.

Brie is also a co-host of MarketHer, a video podcast for women in marketing, and is working to bring her passion outside of work in her local community to build confidence and leadership skills in school-age girls to build the next generation of working women.

Brie works remotely in Houston, Texas. When she’s not cheering for the Astros (World Series Champs!), using the word, “ya’ll” in every sentence, or riding her horse to work (just kidding), you’ll find her hanging out with her family and her bloodhound, Duke.
