She also serves on the board of the Alannah and Madeleine Foundation, is an ambassador for the Vinnies CEO Sleepout and is a member of Chief Executive Women.

Kramer previously served as group general manager at Pacific Brands and held a number of leadership positions at Telstra, including chief of marketing and group managing director, product management, where she was responsible for strategy and development across Telstra’s $20+ billion portfolio.
