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.”
