We are a network of leaders committed to building an equitable future.
As vice president of finance and administration for StriveTogether, Brittany Speed provides leadership, financial acumen and strategic insight to ensure the financial health, integrity and growth of the organization.
Brittany began her professional career in public accounting, working for Deloitte and Touche, a top global accounting firm. She continued to develop and articulate her financial and analytical skills through financial planning and analysis, compliance, program management and consulting. Brittany also brings process and operational leadership skills, developed from her work across public and private entities, as well as within the nonprofit sector.
Brittany is very active in the community and nonprofit industry. She is currently president of the executive committee of Cancer Family Care’s Board and serves as president of the Ault Park Advisory Council, where she has raised several thousands of dollars to directly benefit the organizations through events and fundraising. An avid runner, she also serves as a marathon coach, pacer and trainer with her local running group and co-founded her own female-based running community in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Brittany holds a Bachelor of Science in accounting and with a communications minor, as well as a master’s in business administration from the University of Dayton. She is a certified public accountant.
My long-term involvement with Cincinnati nonprofit Cancer Family Care has provided me with the opportunity to help families and cancer patients in need, while also helping to shape my career path. What started out as an outlet to volunteer my time as a young professional turned into a chance to develop my leadership skills, understand the nonprofit world and ultimately leave corporate life and focus my career in the nonprofit space. Without this valuable experience and personal connection to this local organization, I would never have found my dream job at StriveTogether, where I put my business and financial skills to work while helping to make a difference for students and families across the country!
