Beth Hatcher

What led to Beth Interactive?

My early career was in healthcare marketing, where I built digital marketing programs for several Chicago hospitals. In 2010, my husband and I decided to move to Germany, so I asked my boss if I could continue working remotely for the hospital. She said no—but told me that I could continue the work if I became a vendor.

And that’s where Beth Interactive began: just me, working solo from a dining room table in Germany. I added 1 team member in 2011, moved back to Chicago in 2013, and things really started picking up from there.

Since then, our niche has transformed from healthcare marketing to healthcare fundraising—and we now specialize in digital philanthropy and strategic communications for non-profits across the country!

What is your favorite part of your job?

My greatest passion is people. I love the organizations we serve—but truly, the relationships with the lovely, compassionate and talented people who work there make my job the joy that it is.

And I am incredibly lucky to be supported by an absolutely exceptional team at Beth Interactive! We all care deeply about the people we work with and their families. I am both proud and honored that many of my clients and team members have become friends for life.

International travels (especially living in Paris and Germany!), languages, specialty cocktails, wine, raising two daughters—and, of course, digital philanthropy.
