As Vice President of Accounts, Kristen will be responsible for developing strategies to amplify the impact of Cause’s consulting clients and their ability to make a significant and measurable difference in the world.

Her commitment to social impact causes inspires her colleagues and drives exceptional results,” said Cause Communications Founder, R. Christine Hershey. “All three of our newest team members share our passion for using communications to make our world a better place and will expand our capacity in exciting ways.”

Cause’s addition of new team members reflects an era of increased need across the social impact sector as our world struggles to find a new normal and as important issues and causes need increased visibility and action more than ever. As the first 100% purpose-driven communications firm of its kind, Cause takes on issues that are bigger than all of us and has worked on the frontlines supporting visionary partners and cross-sector clients since 1977.

Christopher joins the firm as Marketing Director and brings more than 20 years of experience in the nonprofit and corporate sectors leading successful philanthropic and social impact programs, fundraising campaigns, leadership and crisis communications, strategic planning initiatives, influencer relations, social media and digital marketing efforts, multimedia productions, and more. An innovator in the space, he brings new approaches to marketing initiatives on behalf of Cause’s clients, as well as Cause’s own marketing activities.

In her role as Senior Media Relations Manager, Jane draws on her strong interpersonal and relationship-building skills as well as her sharp, results-oriented approaches to help clients achieve their media-related goals. She is responsible for developing communications strategies that harness the power of media relations using insightful analysis to drive compelling storytelling.
