By uniting the brightest minds of Unisys across all business units through a virtual platform, she empowers those with opportunities, challenges, ideas and innovative technologies to come together in order to create and expand new opportunities for the business.
After graduating from Temple University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering and Bio-Engineering, Brittney started off her career as a software engineer.

Four have since issued that comprise advances in cloud-based active password managers; service partition virtualization system and method having a secure application; and reduced service partition virtualization system and method.
During her time at Unisys, she has introduced novel and beneficially disruptive ways of working to the organization. These initiatives include leading an open innovation partnership and competition with West Chester, Pa. technology incubator Walnut St. Labs to develop a friendly user interface (UI) and user experience for the Unisys Stealth® solution, as well as global hackathons throughout the Products and Platforms Organization within Unisys. From her accomplishments with innovation, the Philadelphia Business Journal awarded Brittney the 2016 Tech Disruptor Award.
