Filament was founded in 2013 by Kelly Andrew (she likes to refer to herself as the Chief Ideas Officer in the organization). After a decade in non-profit development roles, Kelly decided to flex her creative muscles and passion for developing new programs and business management by diving into entrepreneurship. As a consultant and sole-preneur, Kelly worked with micro-businesses to develop their brand guidelines, dive in to social media marketing, and execute special events. She took on the role of Managing Director of Local First Milwaukee, and continued to grow Filament. Kelly’s talents lie in strategy development and execution, creative content development, and connecting with people on a real, respectful level. She’s passionate about her family farm, her #StumpyKittens, and cooking meals for friends. You can connect with Kelly on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
