Mentorship & Advisory Team Reception

September 25, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Coleman Center mentors, mentees, and the Coleman Center Campus Advisory Team are invited for a reception with keynote by Jodi Navta, CMO of Coyote Logistics.

Join us for appetizers and cocktails on DePaul Center’s beautiful new 11th floor rooftop.


After earning an undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan, Jodi Navta started her career in media at Sports Illustrated magazine in New York City, then moved to Chicago to attend Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, where she earned a master’s of science in journalism.

She was a serial entrepreneur for 10 years in publishing, retail, and brand services and most recently made her foray into the logistics industry in-house at Coyote Logistics, where she built the Marketing and Communications function from the ground up using an Integrated Marketing and Communication (IMC) approach. Jodi is a member of the management team responsible for overseeing Coyote’s growth from $350M to $2.2B in ~5 years and led the company through a recent acquisition by $60B-publicly-traded, United Parcel Service (UPS).

Jodi is at the helm of brand reputation, internal communications and culture, lead generation, business strategy, sales enablement, executive communication, and public relations. Jodi rapidly built a “disruptive” marketing organization at Coyote that drove innovation and significant revenue growth in a short period of time.
