Pivot Strategies Announces New Interim CEO

Award-winning and Women-owned Company Adds Accomplished People-Leader and Growth Driver to Support More Companies Through Transformational Change

MINNEAPOLIS — Pivot Strategies, an internal communications and change management consultancy, announced Lisa Brezonik as interim CEO while Stacia Nelson, Founder, goes on maternity leave until July 2024. Brezonik previously held the role of CEO at Salo where she led the firm to more than double in size by increasing employee engagement and developing a national strategy to fuel growth. Salo was acquired by Korn Ferry in February 2023.

“Lisa is an incredible addition to our team. When I was looking for my replacement, we were looking for someone who could not only run Pivot, but help set us up for the next stage of growth. This is Lisa’s sweet spot,” remarked Nelson. “She has built her career around helping people and organizations grow and thrive. Her experience and expertise have made her the business strategist to both lead companies and serve on several boards as organizations continue to evolve. She will be in the role until the end of summer and at that point, will build an advisory board and transition to board chair.”

“I’m thrilled to join Pivot Strategies and contribute to its ongoing success,” said Brezonik. “In today’s dynamic landscape, the need for clear communication and adept change management has never been more crucial. I look forward to collaborating with the exceptional team at Pivot to empower organizations through effective communication and strategic guidance.”

As organizations increasingly recognize the importance of internal communications and change management in driving successful transformations, Pivot remains at the forefront, providing unparalleled support and expertise to clients navigating change with purpose and clarity.

Pivot Strategies has seen steady growth since its inception. The company saw 180% revenue growth rate from 2020 to 2023, landing the company on the Inc. 5000 fastest-growing companies list and debuting on the Minneapolis St. Paul Business Journal’s Fast 50 List at No. 10 in 2022.
