JEAN HUANG, FOUNDER AND PRINCIPAL
I’m a versatile strategist and marketer with nearly 20 years of experience growing brands, businesses, and relationships. With a sociology degree from Harvard and an MBA from NYU, I’ve spent my career half agency-side and half client-side, which helps me balance blue-sky thinking with business realities.
I’ve been lucky to work with some of the world’s most respected brands, in industries ranging from fragrance to finance, both B2B and B2C. Along the way, I’ve spoken with countless customers, sales teams, C-suite execs, and influencers in order to untangle the toughest marketing puzzles. I love the thrill of parachuting into a challenge, whether you might need help developing your brand, tackling digital, or telling your story in a more compelling way.

I’m a sucker for alliteration, serial commas, em dashes, and puns.
I love animals — over the years I've parented four turtles, two dogs, two chickens, two hermit crabs, one cat, one hamster, and one human boy :)
I went to baking school and make some knockout croissants and baguettes!
