#EmployeeSpotlight -Meet Britt Clyde, Senior Marketing Manager, who joined Kosta Browne over six years ago and is an integral member of the team. Every printed piece you receive during one of our Offerings has been hand-selected by her. The paper, colors, photographs, paragraphs, and even the captions—all were thoughtfully chosen and personally deliberated on for weeks. The same is true for each email, invitation, and page on our website. She has a passion for excellence and an intuitive nature that truly elevates the KB brand.
Britt was first introduced to Kosta Browne during the beginning stages of her career. “I had heard the lore of the years-long waitlist, and after tasting the wine from a friend, I knew I had to be on the list. I joined in 2011 and placed my first order in 2014. The magic surrounding Kosta Browne that enticed me 12 years ago is as alive today as it was when I joined, and I feel incredibly proud and grateful to be able to share the KB story.”
As hard as it is to imagine, Britt wasn’t always interested in Marketing. She earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Cal Poly State University and then traveled to Europe for 3.5 months. Upon her return, she found work at a winery in Edna Valley while contemplating her future and shortly decided to go all in—learning as much as she could about wine. She has since earned her WSET level 3, as well as CSW, CSS, and CSWS certifications.
In 2015, Britt moved to Healdsburg and began as a Tasting Room Manager for a downtown winery before working as Wine Club Specialist for another well-known brand. Fast forward to 2017, when she was recruited to Kosta Browne. “It was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down, and I’ve never looked back. It’s been the most fulfilling, diverse, and creative job that I’ve had within the industry. The individuals I have the pleasure of working with daily are all passionate, collaborative, and remarkably talented. I couldn’t ask for a better team to be a part of.”
