“Kelly's combined agency and client-side brand management experience should qualify her for the title of Brand Management Guru. She has amazing creative instincts, natural conflict-resolution skills, and deep insight into the elusive art of "Git-R-Done." On top of this capabilities inventory, she was always a pleasure to work with, both as a colleague at BBDO and later as a client at Chrysler.” April 14, 2009

Oliver Hoffmann , Creative Director, 360 Global , BBDO Detroit worked indirectly for Kelly at Chrysler LLC

“I worked with Kelly over many years both as a colleague in our international group and later with her as a client. Since I've know her she has been a stalwart professional whose broad base of marketing experience and expertise consistently delivered solid results. She was a highly valued member of the agency team, so much so that clients later brought her on to support the Jeep brand internationally. She has an uncanny knack for cutting through red tape and other obstacles to focus on the things that matter, drive results and ultimately get the job done. She would make a positive contribution to any marketing team.” June 30, 2009

John Vincent , Director, International , BBDO Detroit was a consultant or contractor to Kelly at Chrysler LLC

“Kelly is a pro's pro. She is smart, strategic, people-oriented, diligent, a team-player, and a person with an inherent drive to do the right thing. She has a demonstrable track record as a productive senior manager and a wealth of senior level management experience on an international scale. She is right at home dealing with C-Level managers and was always a key, go-to person to get the most difficult tasks and projects completed. Kelly would be on my A-list to hire for nearly any position that I had available, just to have her back on my team. You won't regret it.
