Britt-Anya Bursell discovered her love of marketing (and event planning) when she started her career at a software start-up that was acquired by Cisco Systems. After the Silicon Valley crash, she was brought into the A/E/C industry as a Marketing Assistant at Cambridge Systematics. She learned the ropes and climbed the Department ladder to Senior Associate over her nearly 15 years there.
Britt became involved in SMPS back in 2016 after her manager encouraged her to join and get involved. She felt as though she was making up for lost time though and joined the Special Events Committee as soon as she became a member. Her dedication paid off and Britt was honored with the New Member of the Year Award in 2018. Joining a committee and becoming involved in the Boston chapter has been invaluable to Britt and she deeply values being part of this wonderful community. She fervently recommends joining a committee to all new members of SMPS Boston.
As Director of the Special Events Committee, Britt is responsible for planning and executing SMPS Boston’s big events, the Fall Night Out, Winter Holiday Party, and the Annual Awards Gala. She works with a group of talented individuals who assist her in all facets of this work, taking responsibility for the necessary tasks to make our chapter events happen. In her current role as a Marketing Manager for HMMH, Britt stays busy wearing the many hats of marketing, managing her department, and working with firm leadership to elevate the firm’s marketing and business development strategy and activities.
When Britt is not at work, she enjoys spending time with her family. When she gets a moment to herself, she enjoys catching up on her sci-fi shows and books.
