The Chamber is pleased to announce that Kathleen Quinn has joined the staff as the new Membership and Marketing Director. For the past 12 years, Kathi worked for the Auto Club Group (also known as AAA) and a local credit union with responsibilities in the areas of membership and business development.
Prior to that, she had her own North Shore marketing firm where she specialized in helping small to mid-size companies develop their brands and build their businesses. The company provided marketing-infused PR services that included community relations, logo design, events, advertising and consulting for clients ranging from retail, technology and restaurants, to service and small manufacturers. She received a Silver Anvil Award for Community Relations from the Publicity Club of Chicago, along with two Tower Awards from the Business Marketing Association for public relations and event marketing.
Kathi has volunteered for a number of organizations including the Blue Bow campaign for child abuse prevention, Scouts, PTA, Money Week, Friendship Club and Tree Guardians. Most recently, she was selected as an artist for the Kohl Children’s Museum’s 30th anniversary Parade of Trees.
“I am thrilled to be with the Northbrook Chamber (the best Chamber around!) and to have a chance to work with so many great businesses and owners,” comments Kathi. “As a former business owner myself, I know all too well the many challenges of running a business. I look forward to getting to know the members and learn more about how the organization can help. If you know of anyone who could benefit from Chamber membership, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Please stop by and say hi if you are in the office or at the next Chamber event!”
