Kate Brannelly
“Early in my AEC marketing career, I had the opportunity to be a client of Acentech and experience their exceptional consulting practice. When I learned about a leadership position at Acentech from SMPS, the professional organization for marketers and business developers in the AEC industry, I immediately knew I wanted to be part of this company.”

Kate is responsible for the strategic marketing approach and implementation management of Acentech’s growth initiatives. She has 30 years of marketing leadership experience in strategic planning, client development, and award-winning branding campaigns with several regional and global multidiscipline, architectural design, and consulting engineering firms in Boston and Chicago. With her foundation of marketing and business development knowledge, she brings a natural team building style to collaborative mentoring of technical consultants to enhance and leverage their success in all aspects of client capture planning, pursuit strategy, and expert branding across key A/E market sectors and the construction industry.

An AEC industry marketing leader, Kate is a Fellow of the Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS). She has received several awards for her marketing leadership and branding concepts from SMPS, and served the organization at the Chapter and National level in numerous leadership and committee roles throughout her career.
