I began my career working in film production, notably on Analyze This and Law & Order. I then moved to NBC and Corbis-- a photo agency owned by Bill Gates. A bit of an unexpected opportunity to move to London with Corbis appeared and I re-located her life. After 5 years as a International Licensing Manager for Celebrity Portraiture enabled me to have Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK, I was one of the initial employees of Shortlist Media. I launched ShortList as their Photo Director and Finance Manager (weird combo--- I know). In the past ten years with ShortList and Stylist, I rose up to the Head of Publishing for the whole group. I invented National Burger Day and won Marketeer of the Year from the digital PPAs in 2016 and have now launched Creative Influence Alliance. My own CIA. I created National Pizza Day with Foodism in February and is developing her new company after 17 years of working for exciting companies. I loves taking an idea and amplifying it to a national sensation. The latest one being a 5 day London Seafood Festival at the newly developed Battersea Power Station.Locked Pro Plan feature

"As the passionate driving force behind Shortlist's National Burger Day, Jamie Klingler can be proud of creating and establishing a major nationwide campaign that has genuine longevity. Her energy and enthusiasm have maintained a real momentum behind the initiative, which has built significant subscription growth for email brand Mr Hyde while also taking it beyond its digital origins to generate deep engagement through its offline channels.
