Game data company GRID has announced that its former Head of People, Brittany Patton, has been promoted to Chief People Officer.

As part of GRID’s leadership team, Patton will be responsible for building and maintaining company culture by managing all aspects of HR. In addition, she will also play a role in the company’s strategies.

Having joined GRID in 2019, Patton initially worked as a Talent Acquisition Consultant, creating the recruitment process from scratch and helping shape the company’s Poland office. Shortly after her start, Patton joined GRID full-time as Head of People and helped grow the company from under 10 employees to over 90. During this time, she also developed all facets of GRID’s HR department, including refining recruitment, software utilisation, managerial training, company-wide frameworks and more.

Prior to joining GRID, Patton accumulated years of experience by working in similar roles in companies such as proptech company Sensorberg, ad tech platform Applift, and medical and research firm T.A. Sciences, among others.

The newly-promoted Chief People Officer commented: “What an adventure it has been with GRID over the past (almost) four years! I am proud to have been a part of it all from the early days to see just how far we have come – from a few names and faces to now nearing 100 – it’s truly awesome.

“I feel fortunate to have played my part during GRID’s expansion, bringing people together from 37 nationalities across 28 countries. The insights gained, experiences made, and bonds forged are invaluable and I’m so excited for this new chapter. I want to especially thank Moritz, Tom, Chris, my team, and all the GRIDers for supporting me through this journey.”
