Peyton thrives in community-building. After serving as a client success executive, she shifted into strategy in early 2022. In addition to helping clients stay ahead of competitors, she’s also a host on Industrial Marketing Live.

Her holistic approach to marketing is informed by her diverse background. From grassroots campaigns and hyper-growth startups to international nonprofits and distribution networks, she’s seen how focus and strategic use of resources can build brands and drive results.

Prior to joining Gorilla, Peyton worked with Apptegy, a fast-growing EdTech startup, sourcing talent and teaching school districts how to distribute messaging and build their brands. And in 2016, she campaigned for Senator Bernie Sanders, wrangling press from coast-to-coast. She later continued this work with Next Gen Climate, where she earned media in the crowded swing state media market.

She’s also applied her marketing skills to passions beyond work. As an active CSA-member, she managed the largest multi-farm program in the Midsouth. On the weekends, you’ll find Peyton exploring her local farmer’s markets, cappuccino in hand, with her husband Jon and their rescue pups, Zulu and Charlie.

Peyton graduated at the top of her class from the University of Central Arkansas with a BA in Journalism and double minor in Spanish and interdisciplinary studies.
