Cathe Neukum is the Executive Producer for the International Rescue Committee (IRC) where she is responsible for all video content and its strategy. In the three years she has been in this position she has increased the organization’s visibility on Facebook and YouTube so much so that YouTube metrics have increased by over 800%. Under her stewardship, IRC video content has gone viral (extremely difficult in this cluttered landscape). Her videos have garnered multiple awards and accolades such as 2015 Gold Medal from NY Festivals Worlds Best TV and Film, 2015 Social Good Award, 2015 NETA Award, 2013 NETA award and 2006 Children’s EMMY.
Prior to the IRC, Neukum worked for many blue chip media entities such as National Geographic, PBS, Saatchi & Saatchi and Discovery.
