Hi there, I’m Nina Brakel-Schutt+. I’m the Business Development & Brand Strategist for Widen. My work with Widen began at the start of 2012 after spending the last 20 years working in brand strategy and integrated marketing communications on the agency side in Chicago, helping large and small companies strengthen and communicate their brands. For six years, I served as a Managing Partner of my own brand consulting firm, Identity 3.0. I’ve also been an adjunct professor of marketing at DePaul University. My client experience spans many industries with organizations like Allstate, Lund International, Aptar Group, WMS Gaming, General Electric, and Rush University.
