Carla Schlemminger's Summary

Carla brings 20 years experience in strategic marketing communications and branding. In her consulting work, she helps both emerging and branded companies establish and improve their marketing communication efforts.

In 2011 alone, she launched a range of companies ranging from established Silicon Valley entities to emerging startups based in Europe whose goal was to reach a North American audience in order to attract mindshare, future partnerships and funding opportunities.

Before then, Carla drove marketing communication programs for iRise, a B2B visualization software company, where she managed marketing communications and introduced the company to social media technologies. She was responsible for launching its Content Network including the corporate team blog and podcasts, and managed multiple agencies.

Prior to iRise, she led the turnaround of Barra’s domestic PR program and initiated a European-based PR program once the financial analytics firm was acquired by Morgan Stanley and merged with MSCI. Before Barra, she was on the management team at Niehaus Ryan Wong – considered one of the “must-have” PR/branding agencies for the dotcom era – lauded by the entrepreneur and VC communities alike. Carla worked with small, often unbranded companies, pure-play dotcoms, in addition to emerging B2B companies.

From having worked on both corporate and product launches and having seen companies through positioning challenges during mergers and acquisitions, she has a well-rounded knowledge of corporate image challenges and growth opportunities from a strategic communications perspective.

Carla is a founding member of, a hub for all things social media for non-profits and social good organizations which ranks in the top 5 sites on social media. She is a consultant with them and also co-curates the Twitter stream, and Mobile Corner section. Socialbrite's content has been featured on the very popular iPad app Flipboard.


Today, Carla is among a handful of marketing communicators with a comprehensive understanding of:
• Applying participatory marketing/social media technologies to grow the business;
• Launching a product or company with tight project management skills;
• Conducting an agency search & management of the agency to complement a company’s efforts.
Companies seek out Carla for her strategic acumen + practical, hands-on experience to reach new heights in their business success.
