Meet Bryn Coan – LEAD Marketing Digital Media Manager
Name? School? Major/Minor?
Hi, I’m Bryn Coan! I graduated from Northeastern University in Boston in 2012. I majored in Marketing and Finance & Insurance. I was on the varsity swim team, and an active member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and the International Business Club.
What’s your favorite thing about being a Digital Media Manager?
I love how quickly the ad tech industry evolves, and how we can connect clients to the newest, most innovative ways to connect with their customers. I learn something new every day and work with great clients!
What do you like to do outside of the office?
I love to see live music, read and listen to audiobooks, and go on long walks (only if it’s not too cold!). I’m currently obsessed with cooking in my Instant Pot and love to try new recipes! I also enjoy spending time with my family in Detroit and Chicago, especially my baby niece.
What is something others find interesting about you?
I’ve had six knee surgeries, and even have a cadaver meniscus, plus two plates and six pins in my leg. I’ve also seen Hamilton three times; I won the Chicago ticket lottery twice in the span of a week!
What are the values that drive you?
Loyalty, efficiency, positivity and honesty.
Top three favorite podcasts/books?
I love listening to audiobooks, and my recent favorite was Daisy Jones and the Six. It’s a fictional oral history of one of the biggest rock bands of the seventies and is read by a full cast. I love music, and this was an interesting story told through the perspective of the whole band.
I read books 1-4 of the Cormoran Strike series by Robert Galbraith in about three weeks; it is incredibly well written, suspenseful and smart. I loved the Harry Potter series as a kid, so I appreciate J.K. Rowling even more now!
I’m a sucker for reality TV, so one of my favorite podcasts is Everything Iconic with Danny Pellegrino. He’s incredibly funny, energetic, and positive- it’s my favorite way to relax and unwind at the end of the day!
