Jennifer Sutton. Who is SHE?
SHE is a Marketing Mastermind. Jennifer Sutton is the CEO and Founder of BRIGHT+CO Marketing. She founded the company in 2013, after spending close to 25 years working for different marketing and advertising agencies (most recently Jackson Marketing), and ‘growing up’ in the media and research departments. BRIGHT+CO is billed as an “un-agency” due to its new, more nimble (and therefore more efficient) business model, the brainchild of Jennifer and her partners. In just three years, BRIGHT+CO has grown to include 20 core teammates, 30 clients and an extended marketing team network of 300 people.
SHE is a Champion for Women. It is important for Jennifer and BRIGHT+CO to support women in business programs in this community, therefore BRIGHT+CO sponsors the Greenville Chamber’s Women at Work program series, Greenville Business Magazine’s Women in Business annual program, Greenville Chamber Diversity & Inclusion Networking series and Greenville Chamber Young Adult Leadership program.
SHE is an Advocate for Youth. Jennifer is currently Chairman of the Board for YouthBASE, a Greenville organization that fills an education gap among at-risk K-2nd grade students. She also serves on the board of directors for Junior Achievement of the Upstate where she has been involved for the last few years on the marketing committee. Lastly, Jennifer serves on the board for ReadUp, a newly-formed young adult literacy organization that will be launching its first event in Greenville in August 2016.
SHE is an Outdoors Enthusiast. When Jennifer is not working or serving the community, she spends time with her family of four children and a wonderful and supportive husband of 18 years. They take quarterly family outings to go hiking and fishing up in the NC Mountains, and spend beach time at the Outer Banks with extended family.
SHE is a Media Maven. SHE is Jennifer Sutton!
