Host Company: Teradata
Current Company: Innovatemap
Brittany Young joined Orr Fellowship in 2012 after graduating from Butler University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing. The Fellowship was an attractive option for Brittany; it provided opportunities for continual learning, a strong peer and professional network throughout Indianapolis, executive mentorship, and new challenges.
Brittany’s host company was Teradata, which provides companies with powerful integrated marketing solutions. During her time at Teradata, Brittany worked in a variety of roles under Marketing Applications including Customer Experience, Product Marketing, and Content Marketing. As an Orr Fellow, she was immediately trusted with great responsibility and gained exposure to high-level meetings and the company’s executives. Beyond these opportunities, her time at Teradata also allowed her to develop project management skills and gain, in her own words, “an entrepreneurial spirit.”
It was this entrepreneurial inspiration that led Brittany to her current position as the Senior Marketing Partner at Innovatemap. Innovatemap is a product agency that partners with companies to design, create, and deliver digital products and services. Brittany is in charge of marketing for the organization and works with their clients on product marketing initiatives. Innovatemap is a much smaller company than Teradata: there were 5 employees when Brittany was hired, and they have now expanded to a team of 12. However, her experiences in Orr Fellowship prepared her well for the startup environment that she now enjoys.
Brittany has many great memories from the Fellowship, including summer retreat, monthly Business Leader Meetings, and living with a fellow Orr Fellow. In a way, she also attributes her current career success to her time in Orr Fellowship. “Had I not become an Orr Fellow, I wouldn’t have worked at Teradata. Had I not worked at Teradata, I wouldn’t have met Mike, who started Innovatemap, or my other colleagues! I truly love my job and am so thankful for the string of connections that brought me here.”
