Trailblazing Nonprofit Leader Joins Creative Company as Senior Account Executive
The Creative Company is thrilled to welcome Sarah Schilling to our team. As Senior Account Executive, Sarah will provide strategic counsel for our clients in marketing, branding, and communications. She’ll also lead campaign project management.
For the last 13 years, Sarah served with an international nonprofit where she directed marketing initiatives vying for attention nationally and internationally. During her six years in Paris, France, Sarah trailblazed the development and marketing of leadership programs for university students abroad. When the COVID-19 lockdown abruptly halted in-person programs, Sarah led the rapid pivot to digital programs that impacted a global audience.
“Returning to the U.S. and championing clients in my hometown is an exciting change,” Schilling said. “It is a privilege to join a local company with such a strong reputation and values. The Creative Company has an impressive list of clients making a difference in the world, and I look forward to amplifying their stories.”
With her wealth of experience bringing people, programs, and projects to fruition, Sarah will help The Creative Company’s clients achieve their vision through her collaborative style.
“Sarah and I met nearly 15 years ago. In Sarah, we have a focused and talented marketing professional with extensive cross-cultural experience. Her first-hand work with the next generation makes her even more valuable for our clients. She sees all the steps necessary to make big ideas become finished products, and then assigns the right steps to the right people so that everyone thrives in the process," the President of The Creative Company, Laura Gallagher, said. “We are confident Sarah’s qualifications and leadership are what we need to build our clients and the communities we serve toward greater outcomes.”
Sarah holds her bachelor’s from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Communications and her master’s in Writing, Literature, and Publishing from Emerson College. She also speaks fluent French.
Hallie Lynne Heuser, Director of Public Relations, has grown social media communities for a decade. He nurtured, for instance, a corporate account from 500 to 40,000 followers.
