Get To Know Mimi
  1. Mimi Garrity Denman
It may be an overused word but I truly am passionate about helping to create outstanding and engaged workplaces. Currently, I contribute daily to SAP and Riverbed Technologies and am a frequent contributor to Genentech – Early Clinical Development.
Throughout my career, I have taken many business and personality assessments. With very few exceptions I weigh heavily towards creativity plus organization – a combination that is highly unique I've been told. Due to this combination of strengths, I've had a very well-rounded background and experienced success as a strategist, a creative problem solver, a designer, a writer, a leader and a consultant. I’ve worked in marketing, public relations, events, brand reputation, internal communications, design, corporate social responsibility, and executive communications. I’ve worked for HR, Marketing and even once for Legal! 

I have coached and consulted with the very top leaders of all the companies where I’ve worked. I have successfully managed internal communications through three acquisitions, two mergers, one start-up success and repurposing, and many human resources processes and programs. I’ve worked for national companies, family-run companies, and medium and large global corporations. I am calm in a crisis and can react quickly and effectively. I’m a huge advocate for collaboration and am a committed leader. I’ve successfully built both internal and external brands.
Throughout my career, I’ve been responsible for developing and delivering consistent, creative communications that engage employees at all levels of the organization.
I’ve built four SharePoint Intranets from scratch (Adecco, E*Trade, Genentech (Division), Taleo and RMS and have been a constant contributor to many others, including at Cisco where I also worked as an executive communications lead.
As the Chief Marketing Officer for Adecco Employment Services, I managed all marketing and communication (both internal and external).
I received a B.A. in Art Education and Design from The George Washington University and the Corcoran Gallery of Art. I also studied design at The Newhouse School of Syracuse University (MFA program).
Skills: Strategy, marketing, SharePoint, intranets, executive communications, internal communications, writing, editing, strategy, illustration, graphic design, social media, corporate identity, messaging, branding, presentations, and OmniGraffle.
