Hope Bertram, Digital Megaphone Founder and CEO, is an Emmy nominated interactive marketing strategist from the Chicagoland area. She holds a Masters in Integrated Marketing Communications from Northwestern University and has worked as a Direct / Interactive Marketer at top companies such as GE Consumer Finance, Discover Card and Sears Holdings.

A true digital pioneer, Bertram developed the marketing for one of the first online loyalty programs at Coolsavings.com and went on to create an Emmy nominated social media strategy for fashion reality show, So You Wanna be a Designer.  The strategy leveraged second screen tactics before the industry even had a name for it.

Most recently she’s become well versed with working with brands and bloggers on live and virtual events that produced results.  Creating integrated programs and partnering with top players has been a key to her success while working with clients and sponsors such as Jockey, Kenmore, Buick, Chevrolet, Southwest Airlines, Kraft, ConAgra Foods and more.
