A Fast-Paced & Ever-Changing Industry Fosters Innovation, Community, and Professional Growth

With a strategic leadership background in Operations, Sales, and most recently, B2B Marketing, Kelly Kitchens, Prodege’s Sr. Director, Product Marketing has been around for many research innovations during her professional growth trajectory, both at other companies and at Prodege. In her own words: “My entire career has always been in fast-paced entrepreneurial environments, and I tend to gravitate toward high-growth teams and companies. Being in market research for some time now, I was drawn to Prodege’s innovative offerings with a strong tech foundation, which was and continues to be more than supporting the market research industry and connecting to trusted audiences. Prodege’s offerings extend beyond researchers, by offering a suite of solutions for commerce marketing, shopper marketing, and performance marketing.”

Kelly expands further on the importance of a cohesive team for professional growth: “I have enjoyed leveraging my depth of experience and knowledge in new opportunities to support Prodege’s continued evolution in being uniquely positioned with our wide range of solutions. I have genuinely worked alongside some of the best in the industry and it’s been fulfilling to support the team as we think about what’s ahead.”

Kelly Kitchens discusses Prodege's innovative offerings and her professional growth.

A Product Marketer and Also a President

Kelly’s so passionate about the research community that in her off-hours, she’s still putting in work as the President of Insights Association’s South Central chapter! She’s proud about her chapter’s new podcast, “We’re In Research, Too!” focused on promoting diversity within the market research industry.

Hosting in-person events has also been a bright spot for Kelly and she’s very excited to see familiar faces and meet new people at the 36th Annual Vegas Insights Conference on Sept 29-30. Kelly elaborates: “It’s our first time back since everything shut down in early 2020, and we are excited for the great speakers we have joining us…we have some incredible content lined up!” 

With Discomfort Comes Growth

When she’s not working, Kelly enjoys trying adventurous new hobbies such as aerial yoga. “The verdict is still out if I am any good, but it’s been so much fun just getting out of my comfort zone to learn something new. The more we are comfortable with being uncomfortable, the more we will grow.”

Would you like to embrace a new experience and join Kelly for a fun and informative conference in Las Vegas? You still have time to register!
