Jennifer Hill is a self-proclaimed brand junkie and grassroots brand builder at The Kraft Heinz Company. Personally running the Corn Nuts' Twitter feed from her phone, she has grown the account's followers from 650 to 27,000 over just a few months with no paid media support; ultimately driving an increase in millennial repeat purchases by 12%. Her zero-dollar marketing strategy has proven that gut-instinct can dominate over data with the right timing, channel, and authenticity. She has been featured in AdAge, Marketing Dive and Social Media Today. Jennifer has been invited to speak at conferences such as Upstate Social Session, American Marketing Association, and the University of Chicago Center for Entrepreneurship.
