For four years running, the Cynopsis Rising Star Awards have honored stand-out performers, innovators, and emerging leaders under 30 years of age in the media industry. Once again, one among  Sizmek’s ranks has been selected for an award. Join us in congratulating Rachel Cramer, our own Cynopsis Media Rising Star honoree for 2019 (see the complete list here).


As Sizmek’s Internal Communications Manager, Rachel works closely with our CEO Mark Grether and Chief People Officer Lisa Craven to develop consistent global messaging and nurture employee engagement. In just the past year, Rachel launched the Sizmek Inspires employee recognition program, developed the communications strategy for Sizmek’s core values, including quarterly employee values awards, started Sizmek’s monthly People Newsletter, initiated monthly global leadership calls to ensure increased collaboration among key leaders within the organization, and developed Sizmek’s Open Forum’s program to give employees greater access to senior executives. Rachel has also spearheaded new diversity and inclusion initiatives, such as our She Inspires: Fireside Chat program, a global round table discussion for the women of Sizmek to hear from female leaders within the organization about their career progression and experiences throughout their careers.

“Rachel is an absolute gem who has accomplished so much in increasing employee engagement across the entire organization. I could not be more glad to have her on the team,” says Lisa Craven, CPO.

Rachel and her fellow honorees were celebrated at the Cynopsis TV Awards, the ultimate gathering of media’s best and brightest, on February 6 in New York.
