Get to know our new and recently promoted leaders at Levi Strauss & Co. through these Quick Qs. Here, meet David Brunelle, our new vice president of global brand and commercial technology.

What did you do before joining LS&Co.?

I spent the last decade at Starbucks, where I had the opportunity to bring mobile ordering to life, evolve the Starbucks Rewards program and launch dozens of impactful programs. I also had the privilege of leading the company’s digital accessibility program, being an executive champion for employee resource groups and becoming a certified coffee master.

What attracted you to LS&Co.?

Levi Strauss & Co. is such an iconic company, and the products are incredible. The company’s impact on culture and bold stances on social issues align with who I am. I’m so excited to be a part of the team and to help bring our direct-to-consumer strategy to life through digital!

What is your secret dream career?

I’d love to be a beekeeper who sells honey and other bee products at the farmer’s market. It’s my retirement dream!

Where was your favorite vacation?

A trip to Finland, in the middle of winter, to chase the Northern Lights. We barely saw the Northern Lights, but dog sledding was a highlight.

List five things that make you happy.

My family, being outdoors, seeing other people win, marionberry pie with a homemade crust and learning something new.
