Meet The Team
Emily Thurman
VP of Marketing

What do you do at Panther Labs?

I have the privilege of leading our exceptional marketing team and conveying the unique benefits of Panther to the world.

How long have you been at Panther Labs? 

I started in early September, 2021.

What’s the most exciting part of your day to day work? 

Our company is growing quickly and it is exciting to see various new functions taking shape across the organization, and the cross-functional collaboration that comes along with it. One of our values is to “Be an Owner” and I see this demonstrated every day across the org.

What has been your key to success at Panther? 

Keeping a growth mindset. Change is constant and with it comes new situations and challenges each and every day. But, I try to approach these with curiosity and  a sense of humor.

What do you feel makes Panther different from other companies you’ve worked at?

The culture. Our values are kept top of mind, especially when key decisions are being made. The values are not just a “poster on a wall”, they are put into action continuously which I find very motivating and rewarding.

Who inspires you the most? Why?

I was very much inspired by Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson whose stories were beautifully told in the movie Hidden Figures. They faced tremendous obstacles in their personal and professional lives, but found the strength to persevere and blaze trails for generations to come.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

My family keeps me very busy. I have two boys who are in high school and middle school, so I can often be found cheering at their sports events or other activities. Outside of that, I am a bit of a homebody…I like to cook, garden, read, watch movies & TV, and get out for walks with our dog.

If you could visit any city in the world, where would it be? Why?

I would really like to visit Tehran, Iran someday. I am intrigued by the rich history and culture and would love to talk with the people and explore that part of the world.
