Dallas V Host
Vice President, Brand Strategy
The daughter of a naval officer, Kelly grew up all over the world. She was born in New Iberia, Louisiana and has lived in 20+ places since then, but we’re happy to say that she calls Dallas home.
Perhaps it’s her history of constant change and quick adaptation that has enabled Kelly to see the big picture in marketing and pull from the best to create successful solutions. Her career is defined her development and management of communication campaigns that leverage an eclectic mix of tactics, including traditional, digital and social media, experiential marketing, loyalty marketing, direct mail and public relations. Over the years, she has put that skill to work for clients across the board, in banking, hospitality, technology, food & beverage, retail, travel, real estate, telecommunications, healthcare and more.
Her expertise has not gone unnoticed, either, garnering numerous nominations, accolades and awards, including the Advertising Federation (AAF) 2010 Member of the Year, the Dallas Morning News 2012 Silver Finalist Award for best industry campaign, multiple Chairman’s Awards from McCann WorldGroup for generating over $3 million in organic business, several Circle of Excellence Awards from Targetbase Marketing, and the Proctor & Gamble Global Marketing Achievement Award for outstanding, results-oriented marketing.
Kelly earned her bachelor’s degree in communications and her master’s degree in education from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville.
