Kirsten is Executive Vice President of marketing for GQR and Wynden Stark, executing her operations out of the Los Angeles office.
She oversees GQR and Wynden Stark’s global corporate brand, communications and integrated marketing efforts and manages the expansion of GQR’s brand and marketing initiatives as the company experiences record year-over-year growth.
After graduating from Florida State University with a bachelor’s in studio art (and as a member of the FSU Marching Chiefs), Kirsten launched her career as a graphic designer at a prominent full-service marketing agency at the start of the economic recession. Here she gained the exposure and experience needed to solidify her passion for creative marketing strategies.
From this experience, Kirsten took her skills to the human capital sector by pursuing a role as the global brand manager for an award-winning recruitment process outsourcing company. Here, she initiated and executed the adoption of innovative marketing technologies, strategized a brand redesign and developed many marketing deliverables to drive brand recognition and retention.
In her spare time, Kirsten enjoys spending time with her Weimaraner Bentley – who enjoys his Fridays alongside his GQR comrades in the Los Angeles office.
