Who We Are

Business Transformation through Strategy, Data, and Iteration

We love helping companies meet their goals using targeted strategies, data analysis, and continual refinement

We’re hands on.

We pay attention.

We use the tactics that best align with your strategy, and we track them like crazy.

Then we analyze the data in order to do something with it – not just create a pretty report. If something’s not working, we’ll tell you what happened and why and we’ll make adjustments. If something is working, we’ll optimize it to make it even better.

We should emphasize the fact that digital marketing is often intangible and we strive to make it a more tangible experience so clients do not feel so left in the dark.

The world of digital is a dark maze of cross-platform, multi-channel, inter-connected, constantly changing technologies that inform and create the customer journey. As this world changes, so do we.

Derrick Kuhn

Director of Strategy & Owner

Brillity is my 12th company and is the cumulation of all I have learned. Within the company, I focus on:

  1. Developing strategy for our clients.
  2. Instilling our values and operating principles.
  3. Developing and supporting our team.

I am an entrepreneur to the core, having pursued business as a platform to pursue ideas and opportunities to grow, explore, contribute, and chart my own course since 2001. 

My journey has been filled with success, failure, learning and tremendous growth, in all areas of life. Growth, a central theme and pursuit in my life, allows me to not only improve myself but also our clients and our team members.

I consider my greatest career accomplishments to be building an amazing team and developing meaningful relationships with our exceptional clients.

My passions include (but are by no means limited to) learning, fitness, neuroscience and how it can be applied to daily life, philosophy, science fiction, and spending time with my two children, Aiden and Aryanna.

I am innately curious and have accumulated lots of information through my research. So be prepared if you happen to mention a topic I am passionate about (see above of potential topics that could result in brain dump of fascinating knowledge and information).

Vivianna Davis

Director of Operations & Strategist

At Brillity, I am the integrator to our visionary, Derrick. I help turn Derrick’s fountain of creativity and ideas into reality in the day-to-day operations of the business.

In addition to the integrator role, I wear a couple of additional hats including finance, accounting, HR, and account manager for a handful of clients. In terms of digital marketing, I’m a specialist in SEO and intuitive design for the web.

I live in the details and love to see a solid concept morph from idea into reality. I love turning client’s ideas into reality with good planning and execution, and laying out plans and checklists to ensure everything is completed correctly and timely. I get excited about leading a team and ensuring everyone is rowing together in the same direction.

I was proud to be nominated for a Women of Distinction award in 2019.

Outside of work, I pretty much enjoy anything that involves being outside or animals. I have two active dogs (Ollie, a cattle dog mix, and Maia, a border collie/boxer mix) that I love adventuring with around Northern Colorado (they’ve also been known to make a guest appearance at meetings). When I’m not hanging or hiking with my dogs, I’m probably doing some other form of exercise—my go-to’s are Pilates, hot yoga, and horse-back riding.

Nate Shugrue

Director of Business Development

I do a little bit of everything at Brillity. My primary role is managing the sales process, handling the experience someone has from first outreach to becoming a client.  I spend a significant amount of time nurturing Brillity’s relationships with partners, current and potential clients, networking groups, and Northern Colorado’s community as a whole.

I also help manage our web development projects, with a solid knowledge of WordPress and its backend, hosting solutions, and DNS (yuck). Derrick and I work together to build a great culture for Brillity through being living examples of the values and principles we have set for the team.

I love the relationship and rapid learning aspects of our business. Working with companies to help achieve a goal or objective is truly satisfying when it requires both of our teams to come together and accomplish something we could not have done alone. Getting the opportunity to meet such a variety of people has been rewarding in itself. I love learning about what people are passionate about and what their purpose is. Learning their ‘why’ helps me stay focused and intent on how we can best help someone. 

I was recently nominated for NOCO Style’s 30 under 3
