The Chief Marketing Officer of the California Academy of Sciences, Blair Shane strives to strengthen recognition and understanding of all that the Academy has to offer its diverse audiences. In order to attract and engage visitors of all ages, Shane pursues marketing initiatives, partnerships and campaigns that highlight the Academy's offerings in new and compelling ways. Drawing upon the Academy's green credentials, scientific expertise, and one-of-a-kind exhibits, she aims to inspire curiosity about science and the future of the natural world among all who encounter the institution. In preparation for the Academy's reopening in September 2008, Shane crafted and executed a successful marketing plan to introduce the new Academy to the world. Those coordinated efforts resulted in the launch of a new brand identity, a new website, the Academy's first advertising campaign, more than 1,000 news stories around the world, and attendance figures that far exceed expectations. Prior to joining the Academy in 2007, Shane served as the Vice President for Marketing Planning and Integration at Charles Schwab & Co. There, she provided strategic marketing guidance, managed communications, and led a large cross-functional team to achieve results for the consumer focused financial services brand. Prior to Schwab, she gained experience running lines of business at General Mills and Franklin Templeton Group. Shane earned her MBA from Stanford University, as well as a certificate in public management. At Johns Hopkins University, she received her bachelor's degree in history. Following her undergraduate work, she founded the non-profit "Hands on San Francisco" with the goal of motivating busy professionals to volunteer for community organizations in the Bay area. A multi-generation San Franciscan, Shane grew up at the Academy and is delighted to see that it continues to inspire curiosity and discovery in her own young children. As a member of the Academy's senior management team, she remains passionate about scientific education and is committed to help shape the Academy's future.

Blair Shane, who previously ran marketing for the Stanford Graduate School of Business and the California Academy of Sciences, has joined Sequoia Capital as chief marketing officer. She replaces Mark Dempster, a 13-year veteran of Sequoia, who said he will be launching an independent advisory service for founders, having caught the entrepreneurial bug himself. Shane arrives at Sequoia at a time when venture capitalists are more concerned with their own images than ever - a mindset that's often attributed to the success of splashy new firm Andreessen Horowitz, led by its partner Margit Wennmachers.
