Brunswick’s Danielle Brown named among corporate America’s most influential women


Brunswick Corp. vice president and chief information officer Danielle Brown was chosen by Savoy Magazine as one of the “Most Influential Women in Corporate America.”

Brown, who is referred to by her nickname Dani in the writeup, joined prominent African-American women including Oprah, who is on the summer cover of the magazine.

The magazine calls the ranking the “definitive listing of African American Women achievers impacting corporate America.”

Brown, who reports to Brunswick CEO David Foulkes, joined Brunswick in 2016, according to Brunswick.

She is charged with overseeing an information technology function that creates value through the use of technology, while managing investment and focusing resources to improve operating efficiencies. She is also developing the organization’s ability to utilize analytics to provide a base for further innovation.

Brunswick’s 2018 revenue and sales were approximately $5.2 billion, and the company has 16,000 employees around the world, Savoy noted
