Becky Brun, Owner
Pitchfork is a team of writers, marketing strategists and designers uncovering the human stories behind mission-driven companies and telling them in a meaningful, authentic way. The company is led by Becky Brun, a former journalist and magazine editor who enjoys research and planning as much as she does storytelling. Becky believes the most successful organizations are constantly evolving — and their communications strategies should evolve, too. She loves getting to know her clients and their vision for the future. While she started her career in print media, Becky is an innovator and a lifelong learner who brings the latest industry tools, an open mind and critical thinking to everything she does.
We start every new relationship learning what motivates you, what sets you apart, who your audience is and what they care about, and how you hope to change the world.
