Brett Mackie

Manager, Strategic Solutions

With more than 15 years experience as a consultative sales leader, Brett Mackie brings deep knowledge in all aspects of end-to-end custom software design, development, and strategy for web and mobile products and a unique ability to connect complex business and user challenges to innovative digital solutions.

Brett’s success shaping and selling digital products for innovative start-ups to global enterprise businesses starts with a keen focus on understanding the end-user to ensure all aspects of delivery clearly address the user needs and pain points. Brett thrives on tight collaboration with his internal and external teams to build products that don’t leave a user feeling like they just “checked a box,” but rather that they “served a purpose.” Building products with “purpose” starts with the user and ultimately leads to strong business outcomes, continued growth, and engagement.

Prior to 8th Light, Brett served as Head of Growth for a fast-growing product development agency in Chicago, ran a successful independent web design consultancy, and launched a myriad of start-ups spanning fitness, lifestyle media, and a community-focused platform to help Dads raise “city kids,” educating them on civic duty, culture and just being good humans.

Brett graduated from the University of Illinois with a Bachelors of Arts in Communications and Advertising.
