As Vice President, Brand and Audience Development for Arts Commons, Kaija applies her decades of creative and strategic experience to develop and promote the Arts Commons brand and reputation through marketing and communications. Overseeing a team of creative and passionate individuals, she also leads the brand touchpoint initiatives that shape the overall customer experience with Arts Commons.
