Martha Nevanen
Chief Marketing & Communications Officer

After a long career in corporate marketing communications, Martha started Buzz Partners, a fractional CMO consulting business, in late 2022. She builds upon her deep experience in business-to-business marketing in commercial real estate, manufacturing, start-ups, and financial services, and aligns marketing communications strategy with business goals to build brands that connect with clients, employees, and salespeople.
