As the vice president of communications and marketing at Medicines360, Stacey Manley brings deep experience in strategic communications, brand identity, organizational development and social impact analysis to advance the company’s efforts to close critical gaps in women’s healthcare.
Stacey is passionate about harnessing communications to take on the most pressing societal challenges and has a unique background in supporting strategies and campaigns that challenge outmoded ways of thinking about longstanding social disparities. As part of his current role, he focuses on building Medicines360’s reputational equity, drawing from his 25 years of communications work spanning national nonprofits, regional community foundations, private philanthropic organizations and multinational advertising agencies.
Before rejoining Medicines360, Stacey led marketing and communications at Hopelab, a private operating foundation within the Omidyar group. At the East Bay Community Foundation, he was instrumental in developing the organization’s strategic framework with a narrative supporting social justice and racial equity, which Inside Philanthropy recognized as the “Boldest Community Foundation of 2019.”
Before transitioning to the social impact sector, Stacey spent the early part of his career in advertising, working with clients like Kraft Foods, The Walt Disney Company, LinkedIn and Buena Vista Home Entertainment. He also supported a host of medical device companies and helmed the consumer launch of the Essure birth control device.
Stacey holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Maryland and earned a master’s in public administration from Baruch College, NY. Born and raised on the East Coast, he currently lives in Oakland with his wife and their two children.
