In addition, RetailMeNot recently announced Sharon Brogdon, formerly with Microsoft and Intel, has joined the company to lead and expand diversity and inclusion efforts.

“When we incorporated ‘diverse and inclusive’ as an official company value in 2016, it was met with excitement from our employees,” Cotter Cunningham, founder, and CEO, RetailMeNot, said in a news statement. “Since then, we’ve worked hard to make it more than just words on the wall, instead making it something we live and breathe every day. I am excited we have hired Sharon, an accomplished leader, to expand on these efforts and help us continue to carry out that mission.”

Brogdon previously worked as director of global diversity and inclusion strategy for Microsoft. Before that, she worked at Intel. She is an ASCENT Fellow with the Tuck School of Business and a Cornell University Certified Diversity Professional. Brogdon is a veteran of the U.S. Navy and a recipient of the Navy Commendation Medal and the Navy Achievement Medal. She holds a Bachelor of Science in biology from Purdue University.

“RetailMeNot has established a strong commitment to an inclusive culture and I look forward to building on that foundation,” Brogdon said in a news release.
