Elizabeth Hipps

Senior Director of Operations


Are we done yet? What about now?

Elizabeth Hipps has over 15 years experience maintaining internal workflow, defining internal processes, and managing projects and project budgets. She has worked with clients to develop and implement brands and integrated marketing strategies. She also builds and motivates teams of designers, copywriters, programmers, strategists, interactive designers, and multimedia specialists.

She was previously Director of Operations and Finance for Burney Design and VP of Creative Operations at Capstrat. She earned her MBA from Meredith College and her bachelor’s degree in design from the North Carolina State University College of Design.

Elizabeth is the treasurer of the Robodogs Foundation, supporting a high school robot building team. She is a best in show NC State Fair knitter and spinner. She can be found with knitting projects hidden in her computer bag, car, and under the couch.

Why New Kind?

Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn't hurt the untroubled spirit either.
