Cheryl Sutton

Agile Trainer & Coach
"Agile is ultimately about mindset – and once you’ve started practicing it, you don’t want to go back to the old way of thinking. I’ve seen and experienced firsthand the difference it makes to individuals and teams, and I love that it gives us a more humane way to work and deliver value."

After only three days in an Agile workshop, Cheryl raised her hand to be her marketing organization’s first scrum master. She quickly became a believer, translator, and champion of applying Agile values and principles to marketing and hasn’t looked back. Cheryl has provided leadership to multiple transformation efforts and worn many hats, including coach, trainer, facilitator, and Agile manager, so she knows first-hand how challenging and rewarding the complete transition to Agile can be. This is one of the reasons she’s so passionate about helping others on their journey.

Cheryl has over 17 years of marketing and operations experience that spans six continents and includes roles in branding, product marketing, digital marketing, retail marketing, and communications. From marketing strategy to the nitty gritty of campaign development, she understands both the big picture and day-to-day details that marketing teams face.

Cheryl holds Bachelor’s degrees in Textile & Apparel Management and Multidisciplinary Studies from North Carolina State University, and earned her MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. She’s also a Certified ScrumMaster® and ICAgile Certified Professional.

Cheryl calls Belmont, NC home, and loves spending quality time with her husband and daughter. Depending on the day, you’ll find her training for her next half marathon, nestled in a good book, or planning her family’s next travel adventure. She’s also passionate about advancing racial healing and reconciliation efforts within her community.
