Kristine S. Austin, Senior Consultant

Kristine Austin creates nonprofit marketing strategies and programs that start conversations, get results and meet business goals.

Kris evolved the marketing strategy of a major health care organization while it quintupled in size in 7 years ($22 million to $114 million). She introduced a digital marketing program there that led to a 270% increase in first-time donations in a single year. She also advised C-suite executives on crisis communications issues and developed online communities in order to activate supporters on public policy issues.

Prior to working with nonprofits, Kris spent over a decade in high-tech marketing in Silicon Valley. At Compaq Computers, she drove Internet-related policy with industry associations and the Washington D.C. office on topics like secure online transactions.

Kris has scored coverage in–and kept clients out of–outlets like Fortune, HuffPost, the New York Times, CNN, “60 Minutes”, People Magazine, the Mercury News and other California media. She is based in Silicon Valley.
