Senior Director of Contributor Marketing
With over a decade of experience as a creative professional, Kristen heads up the Contributor Marketing team for Shutterstock, leading a worldwide network of photographers and videographers. One of her primary goals is to help Shutterstock’s over 1 million contributors create diverse and localized content for global customers. Her current mission is to challenge contributors to create authentic, realistic and genuine content that turns the often-labelled, “staid,” concept of stock photography on its head. As employee No.5 for the former startup Flashstock (acquired by Shutterstock in 2017), Kristen knows what it takes to stand out and grow a brand from zero to hero in a short space of time. She also brings her background as a photographer to her role, which helps her apply her creativity to her work and dare to think differently.
