Saturday Morning, a coalition launched in August to promote peace by curating and sharing content across multiple channels, has added new leadership, hiring Nicole V. Cramer as chief of staff.
Cramer was most recently at McCann Worldgroup, spending the past six years as SVP, global chief of staff and chief creativity catalyst.
Founding Saturday Morning member Keith Cartwright, executive creative director of Butler, Shine, Stern & Partners, was pleased to announce Cramer’s inclusion.
“Nicole is a proven leader who is skilled at facilitating collaboration and the delivery of big ideas. She is the perfect individual to help us bring to life the many Peace Brief submissions we have received and to help us grow our movement,” he said.
“We’re fortunate that Nicole has joined us. She’s the perfect person at the perfect time to take our coalition to the unimaginable,” added Geoff Edwards, creative executive at Creative Artists Agency.
As with the other members of Saturday Morning, Nicole is a volunteer and will continue to operate her own management consulting business, NicNic Productions, advising leaders on how to build their personal brands. During a span of twenty years she has held various operations and leadership roles across three global marketing communications networks, public and investor relations boutiques, management consultancies, production companies, entertainment start-ups and has started two of her own companies. She is also the founder of her own cookie brand and bakeshop and has held senior roles at J. Walter Thompson, DDB Worldwide Communications and healthcare marketing agency Burns McClellan.
“I raised my hand to get involved with Saturday Morning as soon as I learned about it,” explained Cramer. “We are at a moment in time when we can make a difference for the next generation and bring real solutions to the issues of racial injustice and division our country faces. I am excited by the many possibilities that Saturday Morning is addressing.”
In addition to support and ideas from the creative community, Saturday Morning has also been contacted by leading national brands that want to be part of the solution. They are identifying opportunities where brands and companies can participate. Ms. Cramer will also help with corporate outreach and communications.
