Tracey Briones

With over 20 years of experience in product and program management, Tracey develops solutions to involve and educate learners.

As a lead consultant at Imparta Ltd. (London) she helped to create simulation-based training to achieve effective, lasting behavioral change for major clients such as WPP and HP. Tracey pitched and developed an extended game-based simulation approach to educate WPP’s high flyers, which scored 90% in its pilot program and was launched globally in 2008. She facilitated the project’s expansion from a single module to four modules during her tenure. These modules are currently taught to 3,500 people across 134 countries.

She managed the student-side college information product from strategy through launch for Embark.com, now a part of The Princeton Review. Tracey also drove the relaunch of a college search and selection product, doubling revenue within one year. Previously, she was a product manager at PRIMEDIA Consumer Magazines in New York, helping publishers such as Seventeen and Automobile Magazine develop and monetize their web-based offerings.

Tracey chose to take a career break in 2007 to focus on her family. During this time, she provided pro-bono consulting services to non-profit organizations and volunteered extensively at an independent school. She has also invested in and worked with two San Francisco restaurants, Lord Stanley and Commonwealth. Each has won a Michelin star.

Tracey holds a BA from Emory University and an MBA from London Business School.

Tracey lives in San Francisco with her husband and three children.
