Dana Cooper

SVP, Marketing Partnerships Solutions

Dana believes there is nothing more important to relationships than communication. So, it only makes sense that communication has been the foundation of her work for more than three decades. She’s spent most of her career working with start-ups, helping them launch and grow, through leadership in strategic planning, branding, marketing communications, and fund development. She loves being part of what’s new and what’s next. Connecting people around a vision gives her purpose and energy.

In her role as SVP of Marketing, Partnerships, Solutions, she leads a team to create solutions for clients, find partners when necessary, and bring to market benefit plans and performance strategies that drive success.

Dana graduated from Xavier University in her hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. She has a Bachelor of Liberal Arts and a master’s degree in educational administration.
Dana and her husband became a couple in high school. When they gather with their now-grown daughter and son, there are four adults, four children, and four fur babies.

A former competitive swimmer and dancer, she is a certified Pilates reformer and mat instructor, and can be found daily on her yoga mat.
