CEO & Co-founder
As CEO of strategic creative agency Swift, Liz Valentine could just as easily be called Chief Empathy Officer. Her blend of East-Coast hustle, fierce conviction and razor-sharp smarts has helped power Swift's rapid rise over the past decade. But a knack for nurturing employees and leading by listening is equally essential to the company's success and Liz's evolution as a leader. A University of Pennsylvania alum, she has two children, one husband, a pack of animals and a lousy ability to sit still for very long.
