The Team

The Team

Our team is led by Shelly Kramer and Daniel Newman. Shelly is a 20+ year marketing veteran and founder of V3 Integrated Marketing, an integrated marketing and social media agency. Dan Newman is the founder of Millennial CEO and Broadsuite Communications. After a year long collaboration, they decided the value they could deliver to their collective clients was greater together than it was individually, thus, V3 Broadsuite was born.

Shelly Kramer (Co-Founder)

Shelly Kramer is a 20+ year marketing veteran and CEO of V3 Broadsuite, a marketing consultancy, and the President of Broadsuite Media Group. She’s also a founding partner in Futurum, a research and analysis company, and a founding partner in XVA Labs, a company focused exclusively on helping brands navigate the process of digital transformation as it relates to corporate culture. 

Shelly is a brand strategist focused on digital transformation, and delivering integrated marketing solutions for clients. She’s an expert at lead gen, omnichannel marketing, all things tech-related, content strategy and execution, connecting social media to business initiatives, and helping clients leverage the web for growth and profitability.

She was also recognized as one of MediaPost’s Top-100 Social Media Power Influencers, 2015 Edition, and has been recognized by Forbes on a number of occasions, most recently as one of the Top 40 Social Selling Marketing Experts and Top 50 Social Media Influencers.

Christy Bohrer (Social Media Community Management/Project Manager)

Christy Bohrer is three classes away from an MBA in Marketing, a rabid Wichita State University Shockers fan, and plays a big role in handling day-to-day social media community management for a wide variety of V3B clients. She’s also quite fond of numbers—which makes her an even more perfect fit for our team—and she is part of our project management team working on reporting and data analysis for V3B clients on a monthly basis.

In her spare time which, when you’re the parent of two children under the age of six, is largely a pipe dream, she likes reading, music, hanging out with family, camping, traveling, and musicals/shows.

Christine Hutchinson (Project Manager, Writer, Editor, Community Management Specialist)

Christine graduated Saint Vincent College with a BA in English and a minor in secondary education. She has spent the last decade raising a bevvy of four beautiful daughters and a boxer pup with her husband in the suburbs of Western Pennsylvania. She is a lifetime lover of music, art, writing, and learning. She sings, takes guitar lessons, doodles, reads, writes, and thinks. She also does a terrific job of keeping our team on track and making sure projects are completed on a timely basis. This is probably due to her expertise at wrangling four children and taking no nonsense from anyone.

Christine is also the co-founder of a parenting and lifestyle blog, MoreThanMommies, which grew out of her love of writing and connecting with other parents raising young kids, slogging through the trenches, and trying to stay sane. That’s how she first met Shelly and her team at V3B and it’s been a wonderful partnership ever since. 

Haley Ibrahim (Operations Manager)

Haley focuses on all things related to business operations, process development, management, and internal communications and training for the V3B and Broadsuite Media Group family of companies.

When she’s not working, she’s hanging out with her husband her two adorable kiddos, and working to raise awareness and funding for research for a cure for Juvenile Dermatomyositis (JDM).

Lauren Kirkpatrick (Social Media Community Manager/Project Manager)

Lauren is a graduate of San Diego State with a Bachelor’s degree in public relations and of the University of Southern California with a Masters degree in social media – yes that’s a real thing!

She also works as part of our content development team, and assists as a project manager on various projects on a regular basis.

Lauren lives outside of Los Angeles close to her family. When she is not spending time with them, you can find her in the kitchen baking tasty treats or working on a DIY project.

Janene Krajci (Project Manager, Community Management Specialist, Writer, Editor)

A graduate of Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and of Duquesne University with a Master’s in Educational Studies, teaching and sharing information has always been something that Janene is passionate about. She’s the married mom of four living in Western Pensylvania. Janene juggles many things in her work as part of our team: she adroitly manages projects of all sorts, helps keeps our clients happy and satisfied, works as a part of our content team writing and editing content, and keeps us all smiling on a regular basis. She also co-founded the site and is a well known figure in the parent blogger space. Most importantly, she shares a birthday with Shelly, so that makes her the hands down staff favorite.
