Meet Kelsey Bailey
Occupation: Director of Market Development

When and why did you get involved with BRAC?
I’ve been involved with the Baton Rouge Area Chamber since 2016 because I believe in the importance of being proactive in your community so it grows and thrives. BRAC connects businesses and people together in the joint mission of increasing the economic strength of the community, thereby helping it and its citizens flourish.
Tell us more about how you are involved in Baton Rouge?
Through my role as the Director of Market Development at Chatterkick, I help local businesses grow and scale their organizations by leveraging their digital assets. At Chatterkick, we focus on helping our clients reach the people that matter to them the most by providing the human connection in digital strategies. In addition to my work at Chatterkick, I also support the community by serving as a board member at the A.C. Lewis YMCA and serving on the Development Committee at Kids’ Orchestra.
Why do you stay involved with BRAC?
The Baton Rouge Area Chamber provides an invaluable service by bringing Baton Rouge Area leaders together and giving them the opportunity to combine their various skill sets and experiences across all industries to help the region grow and prosper. As a member of BRAC, I’m happy to join that mission and help in any way possible.
What would you tell someone considering becoming a BRAC investor?
Do it! Not only is it a great way to help Baton Rouge, but it is also a ton of fun! There are so many great events that allow you to network with people from all different industries and roles.
What do you see for the future of Baton Rouge? How will we get there?
I think that Baton Rouge’s future is as bright as ever. With so many amazing projects on the horizon and the highest job growth and economic expansion in 20 years, it is definitely a great time to call Baton Rouge home. I am excited to watch the city continue to grow and thrive.
What’s one of the most exciting things you see happening in the Baton Rouge Area today?
I’m really looking forward to the opportunities that the Water Campus will bring.BRAC’s Ambassador Program is designed to allow company representatives to actively build relationships with BRAC investors and business leaders while serving as advocates of BRAC’s work.
Each month, BRAC highlights one of these ambassadors in the Ambassador Spotlight. To learn more about the Ambassador Program visit the program page here.
