Stacey Derkatch

Associate Director, Brand Development

Taking brand building in an era of emotional intelligence to new heights, Stacey is IP’s most bi-coastal brand strategist. Despite all the altitude, she roots herself in non-profit work that traverses her personal and professional life. For example, as a leader at mentorship organizations like Spark and Step Up, Stacey has developed a commanding skill – leading strategy programs designed to create social impact, while equally solving for the complex business challenges brought on by new markets, products, acquisitions, leadership, and more.

Originally from New York, Stacey studied marketing, business communications and Spanish at The University of Southern California, in Los Angeles and Madrid, while remaining an active member of UNICEF.

If you don’t like the way the world is, you change it. You have an obligation to change it. You just do it one step at a time.
