Stone-Goff Portfolio Company, MissionWired, Adds New Independent Board Member
Washington, DC – January 17, 2023
MissionWired appoints Kate Kline as company's first independent board member.
MissionWired, a leading full-service digital agency and data provider that drives critical fundraising outcomes for non-profits, democratic committees, and individual campaigns, today announced the appointment of Kate Kline to the Board of Directors. Kate is the President and General Manager at Trusted Health, an organization that helps healthcare employers avoid using agency labor through SaaS and Marketplace solutions.
Before joining Trusted Health, Kate served as the President of Health Systems at ZocDoc, the largest online directory of healthcare providers, enabling patients to book appointments across specialties, insurance providers, and geographies with scalable patient-feedback systems.
Prior to joining ZocDoc in 2017, Kate spent fourteen years with The Advisory Board Company, a leading healthcare-focused consulting and research firm with 5,000 member organizations across 12 offices on three continents. Kate led the effort in building and supporting the Company's consulting division while scaling internal operations to better service clients worldwide. As an Executive Vice President at the Company, Kate built, maintained, and managed senior relationships across several of Advisory Board's member organizations including hospitals, health systems, medical groups, and research institutions. We are excited to partner with Kate as MissionWired continues to grow and expand its service offerings, including the recent acquisition of Chapman Cubine Allen + Hussey (“CCAH”) which added direct mail to MissionWired's offerings.
Anne Lewis, CEO and Founder of MissionWired said “by bringing Kate, with her extensive experience at high-growth companies, onto the Board we hope to continue to identify organic and external avenues of growth to find ways to better serve our mission-driven clients today and over the long term.”
“MissionWired is an industry leader in helping mission-driven organizations achieve their goals, and I look forward to collaborating with Anne and the rest of the MissionWired Board on identifying new and continued ways to maintain MissionWired's momentum,” said Kate.
