Prior to Twitter, Berland was EVP of global advertising, marketing and digital partnerships at American Express. She had been with the brand since 2005 and been in pivotal to its moves to broaden its marketing relationships with other brands including Apple, McDonald’s, Uber and Samsung.

Prior to American Express, Berland led PR and online comms for global brands on the agency side.
