Testimonials/LinkedIn Recommendations

Denise has worked with me throughout my 10-year tenure at Humana, as a colleague I supported in Corporate Marketing and then as my director on two different teams. I have always been impressed by Denise’s marketing knowledge, professionalism, and leadership. She knows the full range of marketing disciplines, from advertising to direct response, strategy to analysis. Denise is also gifted at building high-performance teams from the ground up. I saw her do it twice! By the way, she is great to work with — creative and witty.

Betsy Shirey, Communications Consultant at Humana

Denise has been a trusted, insightful business partner since I began at Humana in 2004. Her intellect, excellent writing skills and 100% focus on the experience of consumers have brought much respect from within Humana but also with our members nationally. Denise is a warm, deeply intellectually curious and compassionate marketing, communications, and data driven professional. I have enjoyed partnering with her in a number of capacities, including but not limited to Humana’s Corporate Marketing and Direct Response teams.

Having worked for and with Denise in a variety of roles for over a decade, I have found her to be an exceptional marketing executive and business leader. Denise is trustworthy, outcome driven, and the type of leader that inspires the best in her team and business partners. In a highly dynamic, fast-paced industry, I found tremendous value in Denise’s business acumen, strategic thinking, and instincts. Denise builds win-win partnerships and she is a calming presence in an industry typically dominated by Type A egos. I recommend Denise Damron for any role that demands a blue-chip executive to lead change or drive growth.
