Jodi Brooks

Managing Partner

Professional Experience

With deep expertise in the multi-faceted technology sector, I bring significant knowledge and experience to my role as managing partner here at FINN, focusing my energy on business development and growth, as well as thought leadership, with previous oversight of the FINN global technology practice. Prior to joining the agency, I spent time as Burson-Marsteller’s U.S. technology practice chair, where I led the team through a multi-year transformation into a more agile, hungry, passionate, and creative offering while retaining the legacy of intelligence and thoughtfulness.  Under my leadership, the practice evolved and supported some of the industry’s greatest tech titans and brands as well as non-traditional “tech” multi-national corporations with disruptive, innovative storytelling. During my career, I played pivotal roles in the launch of the Razr phone through the Cingular and AT&T merger, the introduction to the wireless charging category with Duracell/Powermat and launching an 11-market global eye health Barometer for Bausch + Lomb. Pivoting a company isn’t easy, and I also played a significant part with some of the most transformational landscape shifts including Oracle, HP, DXC, Nokia, Fitbit, Zebra Technologies, Baidu, Verizon, AT&T, Accenture and Honeywell.

Rarely are opportunities presented to you in a perfect way. In a nice little box with a yellow bow on top. Opportunities – the good ones – are messy, confusing and hard to recognize. They're risky. They challenge you.

- Susan Wojcicki

How'd you get here

With 18-plus years of experience, I have been focused in the technology sector for the bulk of my career. Prior to joining Finn Partners, I served in a tech leadership role at three global public relations firms, including most recently as head of our own technology practice.
