Though she admits that her decision to move to Chicago after college was a bit impulsive, Associate Consultant Kristen Bishop says she quickly fell in love with the city and its incredible variety of interesting events and activities. Soon after she arrived, she began work as an Assistant Account Executive at a P.R. firm, where she gained experience in identifying clients’ challenges and solving their difficult brand issues. At that position, she earned a Publicity Club of Chicago Golden Trumpet Award, and now at Brandtrust, Kristen has continued to build on her impressive resume by handling projects for some of our biggest clients.
“I love the open and friendly atmosphere at Brandtrust,” she says. “It doesn’t feel like you’re coming into an office every morning–it feels like you are coming into a second home. Everyone is really friendly and inviting, and each person here is so intelligent and has his or her own set of personal skills and passions.” Kristen fits right into that description with her experience and dedication to her job—her recent work includes gaining deep consumer and patient insights for Purina and Eli Lilly.
Outside Brandtrust, Kristen enjoys yoga, volunteering at a local non-profit that promotes literacy advocacy and skiing—both on water and on snow. She also loves animals and once had a cat, Tommy, which was featured in the Columbus Dispatch and InTouch magazine for saving a man’s life by dialing 911.
