A Bit About Us

We love helping companies meet their goals.

We design everything we do digitally with an expectation to track, analyze, improve, and most importantly, learn. It’s where consultation and implementation intersect and it’s our key differentiator. It enables us to refine and improve our services each month.

Brillity Digital Team

We’re also not a “set it and forget it” kind of company. In fact, we’re the exact opposite. We’re hands on. We pay attention. We make sure that any tactics we put into play align with your strategy and that we track them like crazy. And we analyze the data in order to do more than create a pretty report. We analyze the data so we can pull insights and share them with you in order to make changes that matter to your business growth. If something’s not working, we’ll tell you – and tell you why. If something is working, we’ll optimize it to make it even better.

We know, too well, that 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.

Meet The Team

Derrick KuhnManaging Director & Owner
An entrepreneur at heart, I find that curiosity lives at the core of my nature. I naturally approach all obstacles and challenges with great intensity. This potent combination leads me to vigorously research, learn, and share knowledge with those around me. I study a variety of subjects and shift my attention constantly. But, I generally focus on one of three core areas: the progression of human development and how we can improve ourselves, growth strategy for businesses and how we can help others grow, and the rapid evolution of technology.
Kory SwansonDirector of Communications
The mountain bike constantly whispers, “It’s time to leave work and go ride.” As an avid learner, music fan and reader, I find myself wishing that the days were longer, or that, at the least I could stay awake later than 9 p.m. I bring a wide and varied perspective to the office.

At one point, I taught both primary and secondary students. I also co-wrote a couple of books and held down the challenging role as the director of marketing for Northern Colorado’s largest healthcare network. At work, I’m passionate about our clients, both as people and as business owners, and, my team will tell you I pay close attention to the words. Oh, and I can die a happy man. The Cubs finally won. It almost doesn’t matter if they win another, does it?

Vivianna DavisDigital Strategist & Account Executive
When I’m not working to grow client business as a Digital Marketing & SEO strategist, you can find me at the Pilates studio or hanging out with my highly energized dog. With a background in both online and traditional marketing, I’ve spent the majority of my career working for marketing agencies in Fort Collins, although, I did spend a brief time working in the aerospace manufacturing industry which is sort of random.

I have a passion for educating clients on how to effectively leverage technology and marketing data to grow their businesses. I’m proud to say I’m a Colorado State alumni and am flattered to be recently nominated as a Northern Colorado Woman of Distinction for 2019.

Nate ShugrueDirector of Business Development
Believe it or not, I’m one of those rare Colorado natives. My coworkers might tell you I’m slightly obsessed about the NBA and basketball in general. I live for the day that CSU basketball wins the NCAA tournament.

At work, I love helping grow the businesses of passionate owners while also providing insights on how to sustain success. I enjoy building relationships and connecting with our clients, partners, and the northern Colorado community as a whole. I believe what we do is a unique blend of understanding how people think and integrating that with technology. Oh, and the Marvel Universe rules.

Josh StessSenior Data Analyst
I’ve called Fort Collins my home for quite some time even though I grew up in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I might be slightly obsessed about a handful of things. Most days, I find myself contorting my body into weird positions at the climbing gym or convincing friends that they should play a board game with me. I also enjoy being challenged by shows like True Detective and The Expanse, although I do admit to the guilty pleasure of East Bound and Down.

At my desk, I focus on providing actionable information for clients by interpreting the data we collect. I also develop methods to find valuable insights through the online actions that we track using a variety of analytics.

Katie CrooksProject Manager & Digital Strategist
I’m a mountain girl, through and through. Once upon a time you would have found me in the saddle, urging my horse to compete at its best. But college at CSU got in the way and now, my dogs have stolen my attention and my heart. I do still manage to hit the ski slopes from time to time, though.

When I’m at my desk, I enjoy working with clients to utilize digital marketing to help meet their business goals, whatever they may be. I have a passion for all facets of digital marketing but if I was forced to choose, my favorites would be local and technical SEO (ask me about the difference!). I enjoy spending time with clients to learn the ins and outs of their business in order to help form a strategy for growth.

Bryan KuhnDirector of Operations
Off the clock, I head to the hills for as much powder as I can find. Unless, of course, there’s no powder, then I head to the hills in my Lotus and enjoy the scenery. I consider myself to be a lifelong and dedicated “professional entrepreneur.” Licensed as an attorney in the state of Colorado (USA), I specialize in business and employment law and manage my own law practice in downtown Denver.

My consultation and advice come backed with my in-depth professional experience that spans hundreds of court trials, arbitrations, legal disputes, and business transactions as a partner level attorney as well as participating in domestic and international business deals.
