Mychelle Peterson – Sr Marketing Consultant, HUB International
Mychelle’s career has touched on many forms of advertising, marketing and communications strategies over the last 15 years.

In her current role at HUB International, she is responsible for developing and managing the execution of integrated regional marketing plans that will drive revenue growth for the eastern half of the US.

Prior to joining HUB in 2017, Mychelle spent six years focused on content development and digital transformation in the financial services sector. While at Northern Trust, Mychelle launched the Wealth Management Twitter handle and helped expand the business unit’s LinkedIn presence. She briefly moved to the content marketing agency world, where she further honed her content strategy, but found she missed the “bigger picture” of being part of an in-house marketing department.

Mychelle also has experience in professional services marketing, having served as national marketing director for a large regional public accounting and consulting firm in New York City. She began her career in commercial and film casting, but moved into the advertising agency world where she worked for clients like United Airlines, Motorola and Deloitte.
