In her former role as EVP, marketing and worldwide promotions, Kaufman created multi-platform marketing campaigns and multi-million dollar sponsorships for Nickelodeon‘s key properties, from SpongeBob SquarePants, to Dora the Explorer, to the Kids‘ Choice Awards.


Before joining MTV Networks, Kaufman established the Promotions Group within Turner Broadcasting System, the first worldwide Burger King Kids‘ Meal Promotion, as well as a sponsorship deal for the Cartoon Network Wacky Racing Nascar Team.
