Allison+Partners announced the promotion of three senior members of the agency’s U.S. Corporate practice.

Each has increased responsibility and oversight of business development and day-to-day operations in the agency’s largest market. All will report to Tom Smith, president, Corporate, North America.
“We continually strive to build a high performing team that requires we recruit, retain and recognize individuals for their leadership and contributions,” said Matthew Della Croce, global president of Corporate and Europe. “Jill, Hadas and David are essential to our team and consistently work to develop new strategies and exceed clients’ expectations, while also growing our business.”
Feldman has broad experience leading strategic communication functions for high-profile organizations and is highly effective at building strategic plans and directing program execution for clients. She creates thought leadership and executive visibility programs for Fortune 500 executives in a diverse range of industries, including professional services, technology, and real estate.

Additionally, Feldman co-founded the agency’s Women’s Leadership Program, a global career development program focused on leadership development topics and activities to enable staffers to reach their full potential.

She has a wide range of strategic communications experience, primarily focusing on employee engagement, workplace diversity, corporate reputation, executive visibility and thought leadership.
Serving as a valued strategic advisor to CEO’s, entrepreneurs and founders, Baum developed and launched Allison+Partners’ Start-Up Lifecycle program, which provides advisory services for business leaders as they scale their organizations.
