Jenni Padgett

With over 15 years of combined agency and client-side marketing research, analytics, and strategy experience, Jenni Padgett has worked across CPG, retail, foodservice, healthcare, education and technology industries to name a few.

A true Midwesterner, Jenni was raised as a Michigan fan (Go Blue!) living in Indiana, Ohio, and Illinois her entire life before recently relocating to Cave Creek, Arizona with her husband and two small kids. She earned a Marketing degree from Miami University (Ohio), then began her marketing research career at Nielsen BASES in Chicago as a research analyst forecasting new product sales. After a jump to the client side and spending nearly five years in insights and innovation at Wrigley/MARS, she begrudgingly left the world of Skittles and Starburst to be closer to family in Columbus, Ohio. There she worked in strategy at global retail design agency FITCH, and then in Consumer Insights at Wendy’s corporate headquarters.
