Brex was created as a credit card serving VC-backed companies, and has expanded its portfolio of services to include business cash accounts, spend management and reimbursements, all delivered on a single platform. Tillman will build upon this expansion by leading communications programs that expand the company’s market presence and articulate Brex’s position as a fully-integrated and holistic financial platform for growing businesses.

“We couldn’t be more excited to have Karen onboard, with her wealth of experience guiding communications at large and transformative technology companies,” said co-CEO Pedro Franceschi. “As we expand our value proposition, expand into new categories, and pioneer a remote-first company, strategic internal and external communications programs will be critical to our differentiation and our success.”

“I am thrilled to be joining Brex at a time when its mission of supporting young and high-growth businesses is clearer and also more important than ever. As a market disruptor, there is an immense amount of opportunity for Brex to lead the future of finance, and my goal is to help shape how we communicate our mission, strategy and unique differentiation both internally and externally,” said Tillman.

With more than 20 years of experience in strategic communications, Tillman most recently served as Chief Communications Officer at web hosting company GoDaddy from 2013, where she transformed and modernized its brand, created new communications programs to help drive engagement across multiple stakeholder groups, and led the company’s IPO communications process. Prior to that, she held senior leadership roles in communications at Cisco and Oracle.
