Natalie Gullatt is a marketing leader in Atlanta, GA. An Atlanta native, Natalie Gullatt is an Emory University graduate where she received her Bachelor of Arts in History with a minor in Theater Studies.

Upon graduating Natalie went on to work as a paralegal for a few years. After deciding law school was not her immediate passion, she attended Case Western Reserve University's Weatherhead School of Management to pursue her MBA with a concentration in Marketing. While getting her MBA, Natalie spent time living abroad in both China and India for a year before finishing her MBA in Cleveland, OH.

As she began her career in Corporate America, she sought out a network of marketers who looked like her to feel empowered and get advice without getting judged or held back in her career because she didn’t know a lot. While she loved networking in the spaces she found, she still wanted to find a space for marketing specifically. Once she didn’t find the space she was looking for, in May 2017, she started her own small Black Marketers, digital networking group, through the mobile app GroupMe.

Now, Black Marketers Association of America (BMAA) was officially the very first Black Marketers organization set out to celebrate and empower Black Marketers to be successful. From a small digital group to two online communities, a website, executive board, various partners, and multiple events, Natalie proudly leads an organization and movement that will ultimately make the marketing industry better and provide even greater opportunities for Black professionals. She leads the org while working full-time in her customer marketing role at HubSpot
