It is with great pleasure that I announce a wonderful addition to the New Kind Team: Nation Hahn.
Nation brings a unique background to New Kind, having worked with political campaigns, social causes, and professional sports. Most recently he served as Digital Director of the United Football League, increasing the fan base of the UFL over 1000% across multiple platforms.
Nation, a UNC alum with a degree in Communications and specialty in Media Production, will serve as New Kind’s first Director of Engagement. In that capacity he will work with our clients to expand their presence and effectiveness engaging communities through the use of digital tools and strategies, including social media.
As a seasoned corporate executive, I believe Nation brings an attribute to our team that cannot be underestimated. At 25 years old, he provides a healthy dose of youthful exuberance in the way he approaches building communities, especially when it comes to embracing the newest social media tools.
Most every organization has a Facebook page or a Twitter account. But it takes much more than a social media “presence” to remain competitive today. You must have a clear digital strategy that seamlessly connects your digital efforts and communities with everything else—inside, outside, and around your organization. In Nation we have found a Millennial for whom use of the social media comes naturally, yet who also understands how it fits into a larger organizational framework.
Nation also brings another important attribute to New Kind, a genuine passion for making the world a better place. I’m confident that his commitment to and passion for the use of social media will be infectious to all of us on the New Kind team and most importantly, to the clients we serve.
So please join me in welcoming Nation to New Kind. You’ll be hearing more from him soon.
