    Ep. 21 - Painting The Bigger Picture - Kimberly McNeil-Downs, Deloitte

    In this episode of Inside Jobs, Kim McNeil-Downs (https://www.linkedin.com/in/kim-mcneil-downs-52b8798/), leader of Deloitte’s Green Dot Agency, takes us from artistry to the art of the in-house agency. While painting is her passion, Kim realized early on that organization is her strength as long as she could organize around creative. Today, she is a forward-thinking leader who is keen on driving alignment while driving her team to deliver unique value to the firm. When not immersed in the marketing marketplace, you’ll find Kim painting or paddle boarding—though never at the same time!
