As executive vice president at Notarize, Nicole Booth leads the organization’s efforts and strategy to build and maintain trust, messaging and support among external audiences, including government affairs, policy and industry relations and community engagement. She’s built a team that has been foundational in expanding remote online notarization legislation from 22 states to 33 in the past year. In 2020, as the world rushed to digitize, legislators were trying to make sense of the immediate needs of their constituents, including RON, which is critical to keeping business moving forward in the middle of a pandemic. Booth’s public affairs work is a cornerstone of the larger movement to help lawmakers understand the benefits of RON and pass legislation that benefits all.
While her external impact is extremely measurable, it’s internally where she makes an outsized impact. Booth is a culture-carrier within the organization and has helped define the social-impact policies that the organization wants to collectively support, pushing Notarize to take swift and meaningful action on these efforts, which include bridging the digital divide and creating accessible experiences on the platform. She set up formal programs to address each of these endeavors, and in just a few short months, Notarize has made impactful donations of time and money to move these efforts forward.
