About the Author

I'm Kellie, the Client Marketing Manager at Foundant Technologies. I've worked in marketing for many years with extensive experience in airline loyalty programs. What I have learned and believe is that taking care of your customers must be a priority for an organization to build sustainable long-term growth. We marketers call these organizations customer-centric and being part of the Foundant team where we measure our success by our clients' success makes my job very fulfilling. When I'm not thinking about how to build strong relationships with our clients, I enjoy hiking or skiing in the beautiful Montana mountains with my family and Labrador, Kenzo.
