Koya | Diversified Search Group partnered with the San Francisco Ballet on the search for a Chief Marketing and Brand Officer.

SF Ballet’s mission is to share its joy of dance with the widest possible audience, both locally and around the world, and to provide the highest caliber of dance training in its School.

The search resulted in the appointment of Kim Lundgren to the role. Kim has over 30 years of expertise in marketing, brand, and growth strategies.

She most recently held the role of President at Greenberg Strategy, a $20M+ consumer insights and marketing consultancy.

Lundgren led a 70+ person cross-functional team in the U.S. and U.K., with roles in strategy, creative, marketing research/analytics, finance, project management, HR, and IT. In addition to winning a Best Places to Work award, she significantly grew revenue and EBITDA each year, helping the founder to sell the company in 2019 and staying on to manage the integration.

Prior to Greenberg, Lundgren established the digital marketing strategy practice for Accenture on the West Coast, held senior strategy positions at FCB and Interbrand, ran the offices of Hall & Partners (a brand and communications consultancy) in NY and Chicago, and was a key member of the marketing teams that launched Orbitz and introduced Crate & Barrel to the digital world.
