There is a saying that goes, “Others know you better than you know thyself”. I have been privileged to work with some interesting, forward-thinking, driven, intelligent, and sometimes energetically zany people! All this being said, from customers to colleagues, the below are glimpses from their mouths of what it is like to work alongside me:
Principal at MarketVitesse
Bridgette has a unique blend of talents and accomplishments. She is a seasoned entrepreneur, a gifted innovator, and a superb CEO. She is a talented strategic thinker while being a pragmatic risk taker. She’s one of those rare individuals who can see the big picture while at the same time rolling up her shirt sleeves to do whatever it takes to bring an idea to life or a program to completion.
Bridgette understands better than most what is required to bridge the gap between hype and promise in order to turn potential into reality. She possesses a deep intellectual curiosity; one that enables her to successfully challenge the status quo and go beyond what is expected. She relentlessly challenges herself to do more, to think bigger and do better.
She has a deep, unyielding passion for customers and co-workers. She is inviting and inclusive, thoughtful and open-minded; willing to hear ideas and points of view that may differ from her own. She looks for the common ground that will enable a solution or meaningful resolution to be achieved.
Bridgette is one of those truly rare individuals where every encounter, every discussion, every meeting is valuable, informed, stimulating and productive.”
