Brett came to the company in 2019, continuing a long career dedicated to helping legacy media models transform into digital-first businesses. Her previous work experience includes advertising agency and ad tech start up experience, as well as 13 years at Viacom Media Networks (now Paramount), where she held leadership roles in digital sales, business development, operations, and innovation.
