KSA Marketing Moves to New Location
It is official! Last Monday, KSA Marketing held a ribbon cutting ceremony at our new office, located at 100 Metro Center Boulevard in Warwick, RI. Originally located at the Tide Mill in the heart of Apponaug Village, KSA finally outgrew the 1,500 sq ft office. Now, with more than triple the space, KSA is proud to call this new location our home.
What an afternoon!
The event began at 2 p.m. with many people taking the opportunity to check out the newly renovated office. Many were astonished to see how much bigger the new space was compared to the Tide Mill. KSA Founder Katie Schibler Conn spoke about moving to the new space and said, “Moving into Metro Center represents learning from 11 years of mistakes to build the right foundation and environment for KSA to truly kick-ass. When I started KSA, I was single and fresh off the most epic adventure. In addition to growing a company from a one-woman show to what KSA is today, I started a family and got married, and navigated massive challenges in the road that is life. It’s incredibly rewarding and fulfilling to know we not only survived, but thrived through the chaos. I’m excited to see how the space becomes a catalyst for the next stage of growth.”
Katie Schibler Conn had the pleasure of cutting the ceremonial ribbon alongside her daughter Madelyn and current Mayor of Warwick, Frank Picozzi. Accompanying them was business partner David Bradley, Katie’s husband Mike, and members of the Central Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce, Lauren Slocum, Michael Aurecchia, and Ryan Giviens. Aaron Guckian, candidate for Lieutenant Governor, and Steve Kitchin, Vice President of Corporate Education and Training at New England Institute of Technology were also in attendance. Steve Kitchin said he has been working with KSA Marketing for just under three years. He chose to work with KSA Marketing over other agencies due to KSA’s previous experience in the strategic marketing of workforce development services and programs.
After the ribbon cutting ceremony, all were invited to stay for coffee and ice cream. A big thank you goes out to Rise and Grind Coffee Truck and Kay’s Ice Cream Truck for supporting our event, as well as all those who attended.
David Bradley, current partner at KSA Marketing, originally started as a consultant before joining KSA. When asked what it has been like to see KSA’s growth, his response was, “While agency growth is often measured by new clients and revenue, my mind immediately jumps to the team. I’ve seen Team KSA go from six to twelve to eighteen employees. This is where the greatest challenges and developments have come from. We are constantly designing the agency dynamics internally to meet the team where they are today, while preparing for the team of tomorrow. This has remained a top priority for us through the pandemic, into today’s new way of work, and will continue on as we grow.” For KSA Marketing, this new office space is a representation of our growth, and we cannot wait to continue serving our current clients, and those to come in the future.
