Collision Hub announced that Elizabeth J. Blackman has been named operations director. Blackman will manage the day-to-day activities of Collision Hub with a focus on the systems and procedures required to accomplish our company mission and goals in the marketplace. She will also oversee a variety of new marketing projects and maintain Collision Hub’s expanding social media presence.
Blackman has held positions with Bankers Digest, a trade publication serving the Southwest and Mid-South, as well as with the Girl Scouts and the Tibetan Aid Project, where she managed community relations campaigns, major fundraising events, and web and social media strategy and development.
Relocating from Dallas, Texas, to join the Collision Hub team, Blackman is reconnecting with her small business roots and rejoining the news and media world. An honors graduate of Hendrix College, Blackman is well-suited to the challenges faced in our rapidly evolving business world, according to Collision Hub CEO Kristen Felder.
"Collision Hub is thrilled to add someone with such a diverse skill set and rich background,” said Felder. "Her understanding of small business operations, community development and social media marketing will help us grow our unique content and marketing strategies."
With her fresh approach to social media marketing and community development and her diverse experiences in small business operations outside the industry, Blackman is a dynamic and powerful addition to the Collision Hub team, Felder says.
