Ad 2 National Executive Committee


Ad 2 National Chair

Katie Dirks
Katie has served on the Ad 2 National Executive Committee since 2017. She served as President of Ad 2 DC in 2016-2017, and prior to that, was highly involved in Ad 2 Public Service, working on two pro-bono campaigns for DC-area nonprofits before co-chairing Ad 2 DC’s winning campaign in 2016. Katie currently works as a Relationship Manager in membership marketing at the American Chemical Society: a role which dovetails in many ways with her leadership role in Ad 2. She cut her teeth in PR at Edelman, and honed marketing automation, community management, and partnership development skills during her nearly five years at digital publisher Remedy Health Media. Katie received her B.S. in Business Administration (2011) from Elon University.  Katie, her fiancée, and their two cats live in Capitol Heights, MD, just outside the DC. line. She enjoys backyard birdwatching, eating all the foods, and keeping up with the countless home improvement projects that come with being a new homeowner.

 

Ad 2 National Vice Chair

Tina Tsang
Named one of AAF Dallas’ Shining Stars honorees, Tina continues to push boundaries and asks thoughtful questions as an innate problem-solver for her clients. As a first-generational college graduate raised by two hard-working Chinese immigrants, she saw from an early age the importance of resilience and fortitude as the only Asian kid in her elementary school. She started her career in Dallas working at notable agencies such as The Richards Group, TM Advertising, BBDO, and iProspect. She served as Ad 2 Dallas’ President in 2017-2018, where she earned Ad 2 National’s Most Excellent Club title and led her Public Service team to victory with a historic first place win. Her expertise ranges from media planning/strategy to branding design as she embarks on her new adventure in Houston, TX. In her spare time, she likes to travel and visit places that are outside of her culture, religiously watch every episode of Shark Tank, and engage in a friendly battle of wits of Texas hold’em with her fiancé.

Peter recently joined adtech startup Metadata.io, and prior to that was the Client Services Lead (Brand Portfolio Manager) for ThePennyHoarder.com, where he manages relationships with a portfolio of advertiser clients such as American Express and Robinhood.  When he's not working or volunteering with Ad 2, you can find him eating his way through Tampa, catching a flight to a new city, or spending time with his pit bull, Bernie.
