Kristine Coratti Kelly, who exited her EVP & global head of communications and marketing post at CNN in June, has joined Invariant.

She will oversee Washington-based Invariant’s brand strategy & executive engagement offering from a perch in New York.

Prior to her 11-month stint at CNN, Kelly rose to the chief communications officer spot at the Washington Post during a nearly 14-year stint.

She also led Washington Post Live, the journalism platform that features global leaders, policymakers, CEOs, Hollywood talent and newsmakers talking about the vital issues of the day.

“Kris is a big-picture thinker who thrives on finding the opportunities buried inside a challenge—she’s a perfect fit for our problem-solving culture,” said Heather Podesta, Invariant’s founder/CEO.
