Before that, she was a Director on the Worldwide Headquarters team, where she led strategic initiatives related to improving the company’s brand positioning and corporate culture. Meredith led several thought leadership projects, including the agency’s On-Demand Economy Survey, a quantitative research project on the sharing economy, developed in partnership with TIME magazine and The Aspen Institute.
