WENDY SMITH is a brand and business development strategist with a background in grassroots organizing and politics. For the past 25 years, she has held senior positions in the public and private sector with an expertise in marketing and communications. Having cut her teeth with State Capitol politics and presidential campaigns while occasionally attending classes at the University of Texas Austin, she found herself in New Hampshire in 1991 working for then Governor Clinton and continued on that storied path through to the White House. A career of working in diverse industries with high profile and prestigious brands followed the Clinton Administration with senior jobs at The New Yorker magazine, Creative Artists Agency and Ralph Lauren. Feeling equally at home in start-ups as well as corporate environments, Smith currently works at the intersection of media and entertainment, technology, social ventures, private equity and impact investing with a diverse group of clients, projects and businesses.
