Nicci Nesmith Hammerel is the Chief of Staff as well as VP Go-to-Market Strategy for Corporate Visions. In her role as Chief of Staff, she supports and provides strategic advice to Chief Executive Officer, Joe Terry. Because she understands the company’s intricacies, customers, and team members who make it all work, she offers valuable “gut checks” to the members of the executive team. As the CEO’s trusted counsel, Nicci’s role requires resourcefulness as well as strong emotional intelligence, self-motivation, and analytical skills.
Since her career at Corporate Visions began in 2009, Nicci has worked closely with companies like ADP, Dell, Oracle, and GE to develop and tell their story in a memorable way. Before joining the consulting team, Nicci oversaw product development, helping shape the conversation skills and message creation process taught in every Corporate Visions workshop. Most recently, her background delivering consulting services has helped hone her ability to listen to what people are saying—while also understanding what people aren’t saying—to identify and address underlying issues. This experience has given her a unique glimpse into the challenges and triumphs corporations experience when reaching across departments and geographies to work toward a common goal.
Nicci earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication and a minor in Business from the University of Colorado. She was bestowed summa cum laude honors, two collegiate awards in academic distinction and leadership, and a grant for her work on visual rhetoric. Her dedication to communication and business excellence is rivaled only by her commitment to living an active, outdoor lifestyle. She lives on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe with her husband and daughter.
