WASHINGTON, D.C. – Share Our Strength, a national anti-hunger organization, has appointed Pamela Taylor as its new chief communications and marketing officer (CCMO). In this role, Taylor will lead the strategic vision, goals and processes behind the organization’s marketing and communications function, including its award-winning No Kid Hungry campaign.
Serving as a key member of the executive leadership team, she will oversee Share Our Strength’s marketing and communications department, driving strategies that amplify the organization’s work and impact, while building on its track record as a national leader in the anti-hunger space. Taylor will also drive communications practices that reflect Share Our Strength’s core values of diversity, equity and inclusion, including representation of marginalized voices and perspectives.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Pamela into this crucial position and at such an important time,” said Tom Nelson, president & chief executive officer at Share Our Strength. “As the pandemic deepens the child hunger crisis in America, it’s more critical than ever to give voice to the growing need, along with the solutions that we know can solve it. Pamela brings a passion for our work, our issues, and a demonstrated ability to lead high-performing teams; we’re confident she will take us to new levels in communicating our mission.”
Taylor joins Share Our Strength following her most recent work as vice president of strategic partnerships at Common Threads, a nonprofit providing nutrition education and cooking programs to children and families.
“Share Our Strength has been leading the fight against hunger for decades and it’s an honor to join this exceptional organization,” said Taylor. “I’m both looking forward to advancing the diversity of our work and message, and continuing my long-standing commitment to solve the problem of hunger across the country.”
Taylor’s career has included work with prominent public health clients such as the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, as well as positions at top public relations agencies including Edelman, Ogilvy, and Porter Novelli. She also served as senior director of strategy and partnerships at Partnership for a Healthier America, and spent time as a diversity, equity, and inclusion strategist, leading initiatives and facilitating training sessions for corporate and nonprofit organizations.
