Sharon has a multi-year track record in designing and implementing results oriented communications programs consistent with bottom-line business objectives. Her specialized strengths include issues and crisis management, corporate social responsibility, media relations and consumer affairs.

Before her current engagement with Strategy XXI Partners, Sharon worked as Senior Advisor to Kreab Gavin Anderson in New York after ten years in Europe working as liaison between their New York and Brussels offices. Prior to joining Kreab she served as Director of Development for the United Nations Joint Programme on HIV/AIDS where her responsibilities included building coalitions among business, private interest groups and policy-making organizations. She was instrumental in establishing the South African Business Council on HIV/AIDS which brought key international business interests such as Cargill, Unilever, and Anglo American to the table to leverage their influence on employee health and education.

Prior to her service with the United Nations, Ms. Morganstern was Director of Consumer and Public Relations for Lever Brothers in New York, a multi billion dollar company in household, food and personal products. Her corporate affairs programs positioning Lever Brothers as a socially responsible corporate leader were widely acclaimed, and one of them, Campaign Clean to Help the Homeless, won four awards for civic responsibility and programming originality.

In her seven years at Lever Brothers, Ms. Morganstern built a stand-alone consumer and public relations operation from the ground up in response to the company's need to understand changing consumer dynamics and communicate superior service and product quality. She designed a fully-integrated, on-line, consumer response/management reporting system that enabled the company to respond to and collect market research and product quality information. She worked with senior management to anticipate and structure corporate strategies on industry, governmental, consumer concerns and crisis management issues such as product tampering, animal testing and the environment.

Ms. Morganstern holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Clark University, and a master's degree from Tufts University.
