Catherine Merritt

CEO of Spool
Spool Marketing

Catherine is the CEO and founder of Spool. To be clear, she didn't found Spool because she believes the world needs another marketing agency. In fact, she believes it could use a few less. Spool was built as a new agency model that harnesses the expertise of its people to help their 'on the verge' clients reach their next pivotal level.

Catherine is a tenaciously curious problem solver with global agency pedigree and startup hustle. She is an innovative, results-driven communications and marketing leader who has worked for startups to Fortune 100 companies and many in between. At the end of the day, Catherine works with clients in a true partnership capacity to create smart solutions to their complex business problems. Catherine is a motivating leader to her teams, a strategic counsel to her clients and a networker extraordinaire.
