Founder & CEO

Carrianne Polo

Carrianne is driven by curiosity, a love of adventure, and her entrepreneurial spirit. She’s a successful business owner and brand strategist with over 15 years of experience in marketing, creative services, and empowering business growth. Service leadership and a helping mindset are the foundation of everything she does, making it her mission to create spaces that foster collaboration and provide opportunities for clients, team members, and the community.

Embracing her mantra, “work hard and be nice to people,” she inspires her team to be thoughtful, intentional, and passionate about building New Park as a place where growth and innovation thrive. Most important is her role as a mom of two beautiful children, supporting the widespread use of the phrase #momlife and finding joy in the “happy chaos” that is the result of building a brand and family at the same time.

She is a champion for gender equity and enjoys volunteering her time with organizations that support entrepreneurship, innovation, and young women in business. She serves on the board of directors for the Connecticut Women’s Council and is a co-founder of Adweek Rising, a mentorship program focused on supporting the next generation of marketing talent by connecting them with industry leaders around the world. As a public speaker, Carrianne has shared her wisdom and expertise with many audiences, presenting on the topic of mentorship at Brandweek, telling her story at the Women’s Achieve Summit, and most recently as a keynote speaker for the University of Connecticut Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation.
