About Skariphos Consulting
Founded in 2016 to help non-profits and trade associations with graphic design and content development, Skariphos Consulting is now a full-service online community and social marketing firm catering to non-profits, trade associations and other member-based organizations.
Skariphos founder, Luke Zimmer, has over a decade of social media and online community experience, working with association-specific online community platforms like Breezio, Higher Logic, and Tradewing. He has worked with a number of organizations, including the Mortgage Banker’s Association, American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists, and Council on Undergraduate Research to optimize and manage event, volunteer and other association workflows in their online communities.
Luke has also worked with organizations like the Drug Information Association and National Geographic Society to migrate their existing communities to new community platforms. This includes launching new program-based communities, managing and incorporating feedback from staff and volunteers, and overseeing the integration of online communities with existing products and services. He has extensive experience directing cross-functional teams in the optimization of community platforms, as well as experience with internal/external change management, community culture development, constituent engagement, and long-term strategic planning.
Skariphos Consulting was Luke’s side-project for several years, and in 2019 it became a full-fledged consultancy catering to associations and non-profits with online communities. You will be working with him directly throughout your project, with additional support from Skariphos partners as needed. You can find additional examples of Luke’s work at linkedin.com/in/lthzimmer.
