That experience, combined with her agency work in New York City and her passion for her hometown of West Palm Beach, make her a natural leader for Moore in South Florida. She offers clients local and national connections for building their brands.
Under her leadership, Christy has formed new agency partnerships with South Florida clients, including the City of West Palm Beach and Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County. Through tactful community engagement, she continues to bring visibility to Moore’s suite of services and expertise leading to rapid growth of our client portfolio. Christy also provides strategy and oversight on key accounts, including Lupin Pharmaceuticals, Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience and Merrill Lynch Wealth Management.
Before joining Moore, Christy was executive vice president of the Monuments Men Foundation. She worked with author Robert M. Edsel to tell the story of veterans who volunteered for service to locate and return art plundered by Nazis. She secured coverage in outlets such as Charlie Rose, CBS Sunday Morning, NBC Nightly News, Morning Joe, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post and Reddit “Ask Me Anything.”
The story caught the attention of actor George Clooney, who directed and starred in “The Monuments Men” film released in 2014.
“We were basically a small foundation writing books about veterans that no one knew about, and then, we were on the world stage, traveling with George Clooney to promote the movie,” Christy says.
The foundation went on to lobby Congress to award the Congressional Gold Medal to the surviving Monuments Men. Christy visited every member of the Senate and House, wrote letters and organized a screening of the film. In 2015, Congress voted to award the Monuments Men one of the country’s highest civilian honors.
After completing and exceeding the Foundation’s goals, Christy returned to West Palm Beach, where she had previously worked in the marketing department of CityPlace, a shopping, dining and entertainment destination, and as special events planner for the renowned Norton Museum of Art. WPB is also where she formed lifelong friendships while participating in West Palm 100, which she recently championed to resurrect. She currently serves on the Executive Board.
After living in NYC on and off for 15 years, she is enjoying the year-round sunshine and close proximity of her family, especially her 6-year-old twin nieces.
