Kelly Hackenbrack Senior Account Executive

Vault’s resident sports guru, Kelly has a love for athletics that is unmatched only by her penchant for PR. A graduate of the John Curley Center of Sports Journalism at Penn State University, she has an impressive track record of experience in the field (bad puns, we know!) Kelly has led an experiential marketing college tour across the country for LG, and also served as a public relations captain for the University’s acclaimed homecoming celebration. When she joined us as an intern, Kelly was quick to show off her skills pivoting between client demands, sprinting to meet deadlines and supporting the agency as a true team player (the puns are taking over the bio, and we’re not sorry). We just couldn’t bear making her a free agent (sorry not sorry) and offered her a full-time home at Vault.
