Director of Operations

Cassandra Shapiro

Cassandra is an Operations leader with a passion for creative problem solving, employee development, and financial strategy. She fled her [sweltering hot] home state of Florida and worked at various agencies around Chicago before making a home at Banner.

For her, successful operations are all about removing obstacles and helping creatives to thrive, so they can focus on doing what they do best – creating amazing work. She keeps a watchful eye on how our team is working together, envisions ways we can do better, and isn’t afraid to throw an idea at the wall to see what sticks. Most importantly, she keeps Banner’s people and culture at the forefront of our business strategy.

Whether it means jumping in to help produce or project manage, answering questions for the staff, or noodling over exhaustive spreadsheets, she is the behind-the-scenes magic that keeps our heads on straight and makes sure the lights stay on.
