Tina Breithaupt

Vice President, Media Services

Tina’s passion for media began 20+ years ago, as she started her career in advertising. Her experience spans industries including consumer packaged goods, finance, technology, and of course, pharmaceutical, where that passion was ignited by the idea of connecting doctors and patients to life-changing and potentially life-saving information. Tina’s roots in direct response, with an emphasis on digital channels, allow her to naturally approach media and targeting with a data-driven mindset and measurement always top of mind. 

As an original member of the Media team, she provides thought leadership and overall strategic direction for Intouch Media. Fun fact: Tina has touched the Stanley Cup.
