Mazzetti is excited to announce Brigette Thomas as the new Chief Marketing Officer, located in the San Francisco headquarters.

She joins Mazzetti from her most recent stints with several global firms where she focused on client relationship management, sales pipeline development, and pursuit management.
According to Brigette, “Having worked for both large and boutique firms, I intentionally sought out a mid-size company because they have the resources of a larger firm but can still be nimble. I wanted to find a place with really great people where I could make a significant impact and Mazzetti was the perfect fit.”

After four years into her engineering career, she sought opportunities for marketing activities. She quickly realized she was an engineer with a true passion for marketing and business development. On this new career path, Brigette would have the advantageous engineering experience, facilitating a natural transition. She had essentially “walked the walk”.

After which, she started her “Mazzetti Office Tour”, connecting with personnel in the various offices.
