Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck is pleased to announce that Wendy Taylor has joined the firm as chief marketing and business development officer.
Taylor brings more than 25 years of experience to Brownstein, having recently served as chief marketing officer at Steptoe & Johnson where she was responsible for its global business generation and marketing platforms. She also led the global marketing and business development functions at Hogan & Hartson (now Hogan Lovells) and Dechert, and held similar marketing roles at Am Law 100 and consulting firms.
“We were looking for someone with a revenue-focused approach and Wendy’s previous experience running Am Law 100 marketing departments was a perfect fit,” said Rich Benenson, Brownstein’s managing partner. “Our leadership team, attorneys, policy professionals and marketing department look forward to collaborating with Wendy on the firm’s growth and strategic plans.”
Taylor will lead Brownstein’s marketing and business development efforts and drive the firm’s overall marketing strategy in alignment with the firm’s strategic plan with a focus on client relationships and revenue growth. This will include brand building, strategic client development programs and industry-focused lead generation. She will work closely with the firm’s chief culture and communications officer, Lara Day, who focuses on the firm’s culture initiative, branding and crisis communications practice; business development directors; and practice leaders throughout the firm.
“Brownstein really is a unique firm with a unique culture, and I’m very much looking forward to augmenting and expanding their business development and marketing efforts as this firm continues to innovate and grow,” said Taylor.
A native of the Washington, D.C., area, Taylor earned her B.A. at Brown University.
