Stacey Williams joins Waterhouse Brands (WHB) as Account Director, adding employer brand, talent management, and diversity & inclusion as core competencies to our burgeoning employer brand practice.
Stacey hails from Kaiser Permanente’s talent and organizational performance team where she focused on performance management program redesign to drive employee engagement. Among her credentials, she built an award-winning female-focused diversity & inclusion program for Booz Allen Hamilton, and she created McKesson’s first employer brand.
“We are thrilled to have Stacey join WHB given our commitment to offering clients a comprehensive set of capabilities and strategic point of view about how to build their brands holistically from the inside-out,” said Kim Kraemer, Waterhouse Brands Founder, CEO, and Chief Brand Strategist. “Stacey rounds out our deep brand marketing bench with in-the-trenches experience driving employee engagement and corporate ROI for some of the most prominent healthcare and consulting brands.”
Stacey was working on employer brand when the term was first socialized and has spent her career building her integrated thinking regarding employee experience and engagement. She is a master at making connections and seeing how each decision impacts the bigger picture of culture, inclusion, productivity, and employee satisfaction. This skill set helps her maximize her prior experience in several different functional areas – finance, marketing, strategy, HR, talent acquisition, and more – into a cohesive, strategic, and sophisticated understanding of employer brand and its value to an organization.
In addition to employer brand, Stacey is an expert strategic marketer, channeling a data-driven and analytic approach through a lens of mission, emotional intelligence, and strategic intent, resulting in impactful marketing campaigns that also deliver tangible results.
Stacey Williams commented: “With the most diverse workforce and competitive job market in history, healthcare companies must leverage their brands to reflect what matters most to attract and retain employees. Diversity & inclusion and effective coaching for performance and development are more than buzz words, they are cultural touchstones that help build successful companies. I look forward to working with WHB clients to reflect these disciplines as part of their overall company employer brand strategy.”
Stacey received her undergraduate degree in Marketing from Indiana University Bloomington and her MBA from St. Mary’s College of California. She is also a certified diversity professional from Cornell University.
