Work hard together, play hard together

Eight hours in the office together is not enough for our tight-knit group, so we keep the schedule packed with team-building events and adventures outside of work.

Committed to community progress

Our KennedyCrew is dedicated to the communities where we live and work. We devote considerable time and energy, individually and collectively, to local nonprofit organizations. We remain a champion for change through our sponsorship of Centro Hispano, Habitat for Humanity Dane County and events like the Madison365 Men’s and Women’s Leadership Summits.

Our KennedyC leadership team

Our people-first business is owned by Katie Kennedy and Chris Kennedy, both University of Wisconsin-Madison sport letterwinners with decades of industry experience. They carry out the legacy built by their father, Bill Kennedy, to run an agency that always prioritizes our clients. Father knows best… or so we’ve been told.
