The first Women’s History Month was established by Congress in March of 1987, and every year since, people have used this month to reflect on the invaluable contributions made by women. At CCAH, we are lucky to work with some incredible women who are leading the way in the direct response industry and helping our clients achieve their goals and make real and lasting impacts.
CCAH is woman-owned, and 66% of our partners and 57% of our employees identify as women. We have women in every department, and women are integral drivers of strategy and our company’s future. For Women’s History Month, we asked CCAHers to nominate the women who inspire them day in and day out to be the best that they can be.
Kim Cubine, our president, is the fearless leader at CCAH. Before starting here, her work in the political sphere helped shape our country, and at CCAH, that passion has not lessened. With Kim Cubine at the helm, we helped raise more than $166 million for the Biden Harris campaign, more than $50 million dollars to retake the senate, and more than $15.6 million to elect more democrats (especially women and people of color) to the House of Representatives and state offices around the nation. Kim Cubine is a positive force in our office, inspiring everyone day in and out. As she explains, “When I graduated from college, in my state there were specific jobs for women, and politics weren’t one of them. But that’s what I was always really interested in, so I moved to DC to pursue that dream. And here I am today.”
Brenna Holmes, partner and Senior Vice President of Digital Services, is known for her ability to wear many hats at once, and all flawlessly. From managing our social media channels and representing us at conferences and in interviews to heading both digital services on the account side and the digital production side, Brenna is an all-around digital powerhouse! Brenna is always doing what she can to keep CCAH on the cutting edge, and as one employee said, she’s “helping our clients make history by looking to the future, all with a spirit that cannot be denied. With Brenna in your corner, you know you can take on the world and make it a better place.”
Meg K-L, or MKL to many, is a Vice President and a data crunching genius! Our Fundraising Analytics team is capable of delving into the nuances of even the most difficult to untangle data questions, and Meg is an integral part of their success. Her coworker says “Meg has a difficult to replicate way of thinking through all facets of a problem or question because before she transitioned to our analytics team she worked at nonprofits and on the client services side of things here at CCAH. That diversity of experience makes her such a valuable part of the CCAH team.”
Katie S is a Vice President of Client Services, and she is able to run incredibly successful direct mail campaigns for her clients while also leading the team in charge of our socials and spirit week events! While she has planned many events, everyone loves her unique spin on trivia—where she finds any random trivia that interests her, and the answers on her paper are the only ones accepted. A coworker says, “Upon meeting her, it was immediately obvious how someone so young has done so well at the company. There is no one more organized, excitable, and down to earth. Every day she manages to bring energy, life, and zest to each meeting. She has the greatest sense of humor and I am consistently impressed at how she manages to add character and fun to our days all while maintaining the utmost professionalism.”
If you’ve been following our social media channels, you won’t need an introduction to these two inspirational ladies! Jessica W, from our production department, and Mia M, an Account Executive in our Direct Mail department, were two of our first nominated women this month. Their infectious positive energy and team spirit ensures that everyone that comes into contact with them leaves with a smile on their face. Both ladies are incredible artists in their own right—Jessica’s art is in mixed media work, acrylic paints, rubber stamps, and mail art, and Mia is a crafting and party planning extraordinaire! If you missed it, check out @CCAHDirect to see some of their awesome work!
These incredible women only scratch the surface of the amazing women of CCAH. Accomplished women head our Print Production, Digital Advertising, and Fundraising Analytics departments, are Creative Directors, writers, account leads, coordinators, list planners, graphic designers, and so much more! We are so lucky to work with such dedicated people fighting to make the world a better place every day.
