Jonathan Gandolf

Head of Marketing
Braxton Brewing Company

Jonathan is a left-brain marketer with a right-brain problem. His interests, experience, and expertise are deeply rooted in data and analytics with a curiosity and motivation to chase and execute innovative ideas.

The 2012 Krannert Graduate always dreamed of working in sports. However, an internship with a growing software company before his senior year changed it all. After graduation he joined ExactTarget in Indianapolis as part of their Catapult Leadership Rotational Program. After 9 months rotating through three different departments, he became a Global Marketing Solutions Specialist. More simply, a problem solver. In less than a year, he was promoted to a Marketing Data Analyst. 

At about the same time, he began pursuing a passion project and helped write a business plan for a craft brewery. After leading and executing a record-breaking Kickstarter campaign, a side-job quickly began to take more and more time. Now, as Head of Marketing at the fastest growing Kentucky brewery, Jonathan leverages a diverse skillset that he has acquired from his days at Purdue, ExactTarget, and Salesforce.
