Brieanne has considerable experience in professional services for US headquartered international businesses including representing the DeWinter Group and Early Growth Financial Services.

Brieanne will be based at ZEDRA’s San Francisco office with a focus on Northern California, Los Angeles, San Diego, Portland and Seattle.

Commenting on her new role as VP, Global Expansion, Brieanne said, “I’m excited to begin this new role with ZEDRA and to become a key point of contact for HR, finance, legal and C-suite executives as they take their first step into EMEA and APAC markets, as well as getting to know ZEDRA’s existing clients on the West Coast. I’m looking forward to connecting with everyone ‘in person’ as soon as we are able, but to start with, I’ll be spending a lot more time connecting via technology!”

Kiki Stannard, Managing Director of ZEDRA London, commented, “I am so pleased to welcome Brieanne to the team. Our Global Expansion service offering remains a key focus for ZEDRA and as economies around the world look toward recovery, we are best placed to help North American companies capitalize on the opportunities outside their home territories. Brieanne will play a significant role representing ZEDRA on the US West Coast, working closely with ZEDRA’s other offices worldwide.”

Ivo Hemelraad, ZEDRA Chief Executive Officer, added, “The appointment of Brieanne during this exciting time of expansion for ZEDRA will strengthen our presence in North America and further cement ZEDRA’s proposition in the US. Brieanne is a welcome addition, working alongside our existing team in Miami.”
