VP Consumer East
Katie Lippman has the kind of energy that could fuel a city. Her engaging personality and quick wit immediately put people at ease; but they soon learn that she also has a sharp business mind that’s always one step ahead. When not busy traveling (she’s grown accustomed to working on trains!), this Midwesterner at heart enjoys spending time with her husband and two little girls, Maggie and Ellie. Katie has more than 15 years’ experience in public relations, with strong expertise in mom brands, CPG, food/beverage, spirits, health and wellness, and travel/hospitality. As vice president of the consumer division based in New York, she provides strategic counsel, creative program development and account team management for clients including Bugaboo, Schlage, UV and Prairie Organic Vodka, AHAVA and Skip Hop. She also plays an integral part in new business development efforts and driving agency growth. Prior to transitioning to her current role, Katie held various positions at Havas Formula. She joined the agency in 2007, beginning in our San Diego office. Representing high-profile brands such as Kashi, she advanced to director of the consumer division before moving east in 2009. Katie assumed the post of associate vice president in Havas Formula NY’s lifestyle division, where she led program strategy and execution for clients such as SodaStream, Wyndham Hotel Group and Tribe Hummus before helping to launch the consumer division on the East Coast.
