In 2013, Ms. Hammervik led an initiative to evolve CompTIA’s membership model and grow utilization of its vast library of content. CompTIA’s “Open Access” membership model provides digital access to the vast majority of its industry insight, research and business tools to a wider audience beyond paid membership. This membership model grew CompTIA’s industry engagement from 2,000 corporate members to include more than 100,000 registered users.
In 2014, Ms. Hammervik helped to manage the integration of TechAmerica, one of the first US technology associations, into the CompTIA organization, broadening CompTIA’s membership base, strengthening its policy voice and growing its position in the public sector market space of the technology industry.
Late 2016, Ms. Hammervik led the efforts to bring AITP, a 65 year old industry professional society, under the umbrella of CompTIA member organizations and is responsible for building out a new professional association that serves aspiring students and individuals, seeking and growing IT careers.
Hammervik joined CompTIA in 2011 after a 25 year career with United Business Media’s Everything Channel, a top provider of IT channel-focused events, media, research, consulting and sales and marketing services. Her last position with the company was senior vice president, events, where she was responsible for the company's entire global events business. She led the sales, marketing, recruitment, content and event production strategies for the events business. Her event portfolio focused on large scale, regional, community, virtual and custom events that brought together leading executives in the high tech industry. During her tenure there, she managed the integration of Gartner’s Vision Events portfolio, including Midsize Enterprise Summit and HealthCare Summit.
During her tenure at Everything Channel, Ms. Hammervik founded Channel@Work, a corporate charitable initiative that allows members of the high tech industry to give back to local communities. Projects included the construction of new housing; student mentoring and training programs; technology makeovers for schools; and technical and financial support for wounded military personnel and families of deployed troops.
