As Chief Client Officer at BrightWave, Brent Rosengren is responsible for all of client relationships and program success. He aims to achieve success by serving as head coach for internal teams, working tirelessly to make sure they have everything they need to over-deliver on a daily basis. Brent has a track record of providing strategic counsel and white glove service for brands like Aflac, Chick-fil-A, Mattress Firm, Panera, Synovus and countless more.
Before joining BrightWave as the second employee in 2005, Brent gained invaluable exposure to consumer marketing best practices through client-side positions at WebMD and Southern Progress, a unit of Time Warner.
A hands-on leader and outstanding communicator, Brent often finds himself in the roles of cheerleader and peacekeeper, though not always in that order. Quite possibly his most important role is Chief Keg Officer at BrightWave’s in-house lounge, The Siren, where he always ensures that a local and a seasonal beer are on tap and ready for any impromptu client meetings. He is a graduate of Washington & Lee.
