“I’m thrilled Helen has joined the executive team. As BrandMuscle has evolved, so too has the need to amplify our go-to-market, with a focus on increased customer-centricity by driving further value for our customers’ investments with us,” said Scott Weeren, CEO of BrandMuscle. “Helen brings a unique perspective and capability of seeing the big picture, connecting the dots and activating the right resources to have a meaningful impact on both our customers and our business. She brings her SaaS go-to-market expertise to BrandMuscle, coupled with her proven track record of growing revenue and delivering exceptional value and enhanced customer journeys. Having Helen on-board will help us achieve even more success.”
Previously, Baptist served as Chief Operating Officer at PathFactory, the leading Content Insight and Activation Platform for B2B marketers, where she directed all customer-facing departments, including sales, marketing, and customer experience, and led PathFactory’s expansion into Europe. During her tenure, PathFactory experienced exceptional growth, and its new annual recurring revenue growth, gross, and net retention rates all improved significantly. She built a world-class go-to-market team that delivered the desired corporate strategy.
Prior to PathFactory, Baptist served as Chief Customer Officer at ItemMaster, a CPG product content management company.

As a recognized leader in through-channel marketing automation, a list of who’s who customers including Bobcat, Chase, Ace Hardware, Nationwide, Diageo, Trex Company, and Four Roses Bourbon, all of whom are doing great local marketing, and a rock-solid team at BrandMuscle, I couldn’t refuse the opportunity,” said Baptist. “I was impressed by the sheer scale of BrandMuscle. With over $1 billion in marketing funds being managed on behalf of our customers, the trust instilled by those companies is massive. And, with a robust, innovative product and services roadmap, as the only true end-to-end local store or channel partner marketing platform, the decision was easy.”
