Client Development

Karen Papa

Karen has worn many hats at Blue Beyond, as a consultant, an account lead, our “East Coast Anchor,” and now our Head of Client Development for the past three years.

She has been working in the communications field for more than 30 years, starting at a full-service advertising/PR agency where she first learned how to translate client needs into responsive solutions. This then led her to focus on marketing to external stakeholders, and from there she came to truly appreciate the value of “inside-out” marketing – essentially brand-building through employees first.

Karen has since led the internal communications function and numerous cross-functional initiatives around employee engagement and culture change at several global organizations. She is passionate about manager effectiveness, strategic visioning, questioning the “status quo,” and working well with others.
