Kimberly Ellis is the Silicon Valley Leadership Group’s Senior Vice President, Communications and Marketing where she provides consultation and planning of strategic programs, media relations, communications, stakeholder engagement and brand management to support key business initiatives.
She is most passionate about nurturing collaborative environments where creative teams can thrive as well as maximizing brand awareness and engagement among internal and external audiences. Prior to joining the Leadership Group, Kimberly spent 13 years as a public relations executive at Kaiser Permanente where she led public affairs teams accountable for government relations, community relations, grant-making, corporate communications and media relations.
In what seems like the very distant past, she was a television news producer for six years before dabbling in public relations at a small boutique firm in San Francisco. There she got the PR bug and never looked back.
She is married and acts as the pet parent to a quirky, funny little dog named Daisy and a slow but steady tortoise named Britches. Kimberly holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in both Political Science and Communications from California State University, Bakersfield. The Central Valley will always be the home of her heart while Dublin is currently the home of her dreams.
