Limelight Marketing Team Member Brandee

Brandee Johnson

Founder, CEO

Brandee Johnson is an experienced marketing professional, business leader, and entrepreneur. Driven by a passion to help clients and our team reach their maximum potential, she takes pride in providing professional consultation and services in branding and digital marketing that make a positive, meaningful difference.

“Search my heart. Test me and know my thoughts. Find in me anything that is offensive and lead me in Your way.”

After a strong 15 year run in corporate America, working for leading brands Deluxe Corporation and LEGO, Brandee decided to pursue a long-time dream of starting her own company. In 2015, Brandee started LimeLight Marketing. Since then, thanks to her entrepreneurial passion and ability to be decisive and move quickly, the agency has rapidly grown to serve companies across the country.

A graduate of Pittsburg State University with a bachelor’s degree in business administration with an emphasis in marketing, and an MBA, Brandee brings leadership, business acumen, and an unending desire to help companies thrive. She also believes in hiring rock stars who are the best at what they do. All in all, this approach, combined with her experience in leadership, process improvement, and change management, has helped our clients become measurably better.

“Marketing has historically had a reputation for ‘making things look pretty,’ but it has evolved into so much more — and it’s critical for revenue growth. Marketing has become highly technical, requiring developers, problem solvers, digital intelligence, and a deep understanding of how online practices continue to evolve.”

Brandee, her husband, Rob, and two kids, Chase and Rylee, love to try new adventures like white water rafting, horseback riding in the mountains, zip lining, skydiving, snow and water skiing, and hiking. It’s their goal to see the LA Chargers play in all of the NFL stadiums, so they go to one game a year in a new stadium. Brandee is also actively involved in the Pittsburg community as a board member of the Pittsburg Area Chamber of Commerce and Pittsburg State University Kelce College of Business.

Forever a student of learning, running a marketing agency gives Brandee the ability to take her love for helping people and businesses grow and apply that to her team, clients, and their companies to reach their maximum potential.

“I love coming to work each day. I love working with an amazing team of like-minded individuals who are always seeking to be the best at what they do. I am passionate about what we do and while I celebrate our success, I’m never satisfied with where we are. There is always room to be better, and that’s what fuels my passion and love for this business.”
