Chicago-based Cramer-Krasselt has named Karen Seaman as the agency’s first Chief Operating Officer. Seaman has served as the General Manager of C-K’s Chicago Headquarters since 2006, and has a 21-year tenure with the company.
Seaman will continue on in her role as GM while taking on the new responsibilities, though it seems C-K President Peter Krivkovich believes she is well-prepared.
“While the title of Chief Operating Officer is new to C-K, Karen has increasingly served in that role,” Krivkovich said in a statement.
C-K adds in the announcement that Seaman was “a driving force [in the addition] of accounts such as Porsche Cars North America, Heinz, Edward Jones, Sealy and Crocs,” to the agency roster.
