PALM SPRINGS, Calif.—Adweek’s 2019 Brand Visionary Chrissy Teigen is available to pitch your product. She even offered her services to fellow Brand Genius honoree Dean Evans, CMO of Hyundai. (Evans left the position in October.) “If anyone here wants to hire someone like me, I’m here,” she joked to the roomful of marketers. In a funny, candid and heartfelt speech at Monday night’s Brand Genius gala, held in Palm Springs, Calif., Teigen was most thankful for her team “Camp Chrissy,” as she calls them, as well as her husband, the Emmy, Grammy, Tony and Oscar-winning musician John Legend. (He has three shelves of trophies, Teigen joked.)
Watch above for Teigen’s full speech and the moving introduction from Legend.
