Doke joins Komen for the Cure after serving as a communications executive for some of the world's largest companies and agencies including American Airlines, Brinker International, Dell, Freescale Semiconductor and Hill & Knowlton.

"His experience comes at a critical time as Komen raises the momentum of the global breast cancer movement to the next level, and works to achieve our goal of investing another $2 billion in breast cancer research and community outreach programs in the next 10 years in order to discover and deliver the cures."

Helping Komen to Engage New Activists

In his new role, Doke will work to expand opportunities for people to engage with Komen and to empower them with quality resources. He will oversee the areas of cause marketing, sponsorships, multicultural marketing, public policy, brand marketing, merchandising, communications and events.

"Susan G. Komen for the Cure has built an amazing brand with a powerful identity as the pioneer of the global breast cancer movement and voice for those who have had no one to represent them," said Doke. "Now, as the organization marks its 25th anniversary and the breast cancer movement is reaching critical momentum, is an unprecedented opportunity to build upon Komen's reputation and engage new activists in our effort to save lives and end breast cancer forever."

Doke's Background

Doke has extensive national and international experience in strategic communications, public affairs, advertising and branding, marketing, media relations, crisis communications, internal communications, litigation PR, issues management and corporate giving and foundation management. Doke has worked closely with CEOs on all areas of reputation management and brand protection.

About Susan G. Komen for the Cure

Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure is the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure, we have invested nearly $1 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.
