Julia Trotman Brady
Julia is Partner at Valo Ventures, where she invests in technologies that address climate change and move us toward a low-carbon economy.
Julia has focused her career on management consulting, strategic marketing, research and business insights. She worked in the marketing practice at McKinsey in New York, then shifted to a strategic marketing agency in Boston where she helped develop and reposition multiple brands from Fidelity to Ahold Delhaize to L.L.Bean.
Her inquisitive, international outlook has been informed by multiple years living in Europe, New Zealand and the US, and having traveled to over 40 countries. Julia won a bronze medal in the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona in single-handed sailing, and has sailed in the waters of five continents. These experiences shaped her into a deep lover of the ocean, and engendered profound respect for both the power and fragility of the natural world.
She earned a B.A. from Harvard College and an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School, and is a lifelong learner from Mother Nature.
