Meet Kathleen Scovel, The KAS Group’s Leader
Yes, I hail from Minnesota and kindness is my superpower! Don’t let it fool you though. 20 years of big city life in Chicago makes me profoundly fair, yet a sharp negotiator. I’ve learned first hand as the only girl on the block that my tomboy spirit loves to bring the “C” suites to the experiential streets.
Besides my business world experience and emphasis on human connection, I also have a history in music video production. As a female producer in the early 1990’s I had no idea that I was one of the few in the industry. Working with my team at Paisley Park was seamless and made my time there memorable on many levels. If you think you are clever enough to figure out whom I’ve produced for, drop your guesses below!
I’m an authentic and energetic leader that understands the complexity of data and the consumers’ end game. With diverse marketing background in cultural relevance-multicultural, event activation in music & sports, and the importance of ROE. I have enhanced consistent front line experience with Fortune 1000 brands as a change agent. My work with the #SeeHer and partnering with Shelley Zalis of The Female Quotient is a movement that I’m behind 110%.
I’ve worked with many of the Fortune 1000 organizations including: Nfissan®, General Motors©, ConAgra, Nike®, ANA, AFE, WOMMA, Target®, P&G, NFL, McDonald’s, MLS, ALLY, Viacom, Country Financial, MVPINDEX, and Warner Brothers. With my start as a music video producer for PRINCE, my team and I have been able to provide collaborative-strategic content that is relevant, on target, and within budget for the brands we support.
