Career history 

With more than 25 years in the consumer technology and audio-visual trades, Katye started her career as a buyer for a retail chain specializing in car audio, mobile phones, and connected technologies. She went on to work with companies specializing in warehousing, distribution and fulfillment, buying groups comprised of independent reps, distributors, resellers, and manufacturers, Katye has risen through the ranks and served a variety of roles. Leveraging her vast experience and deep network, Katye now leads the team at KMB Communications, one of the AV industry’s leading PR firms. 

  

Detail 

From start-up companies seeking industry insight to leading brands with decades under their belt, Katye has committed her professional life to helping individuals and brands articulate, elevate, and amplify their messaging and reach and resonate with larger audiences.  

 

A strategic communications professional, Katye works with clients to establish effective messaging, attract and acquire new audiences, and develop deeper and more meaningful relationships for them with the media and influencer communities.  

 

In addition to her work as PR and Communications professional, Katye also hosts two audio-visual industry podcasts, Connecting Tech + Design, AV Trade Talk, and has also made guest appearances on podcasts by the NKBA (National Kitchen and Bath Association) and others.  

 

One of Katye’s passions is connecting people and that’s evidenced by her collective body of work, which shares and celebrates not only the stories behind audio-visual, kitchen & bath, interior design, and architectural industries as a way to educate and inspire the trades and the professionals who serve them, but to help those outside of these respective industries learn more and seek-out companies or brands for their products, services, support, and more.
