Kim joined our agency in 2016 to support the work we do for Primrose Schools and The Coca-Cola Company. She glides as easily between these two powerhouse clients as she did between music and journalism, her two areas of study in college.
Before joining us, she served as Marketing & Communications Manager for The Westminster Schools in Atlanta. She oversaw media relations and advertising, but was especially proud of her digital accomplishments, which enhanced the school’s development efforts.
Earlier, Kim had her sights set on arts management. Internships with the Kennedy Center’s National Symphony Orchestra, the University of Georgia Performing Arts Center, the Earl Smith Strand Theatre and Spoleto Festival USA prepared her for four years on the communications team for the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. There, she handled media relations for the ASO’s weekly concerts, Talent Development Program, its first record label and other key institutional announcements.
A summa cum laude graduate of the University of Georgia, Kim earned dual degrees in Music Performance and Journalism-Public Relations. She attended on an athletic scholarship, playing clarinet for the Redcoat Marching Band. Her musical talent has literally taken her places—like a six-city tour of China and twice to the Grammy Awards. She’s a voting member of the Recording Academy thanks to iTunes recordings with the UGA Wind Ensemble and Atlanta Symphonic Winds.
Her professional awards include a Platinum Hermes Creative Award from the Association of Marketing & Communications Professionals and a Chapter Champion Award from the Public Relations Society of America’s Georgia Chapter. The University of Georgia named her a “Top 40 under 40” Honoree in 2013.
You may be wondering about her surname, which is pronounced with a hard “g.” Ellis Island officials goofed when her Nagy ancestors emigrated from Hungary, so the “a” was forever altered to an “o.” Three generations later, Kim says her name always scores the best table at Japanese steakhouses.
