RunSwitch PR Promotes Carnahan to Vice President
RunSwitch Public Relations, Kentucky’s largest full-service public relations and public affairs firm, is promoting Kaylee Carnahan of Louisville, KY, to Vice President. Kaylee has been with RunSwitch PR since it formed in 2012, leading dozens of projects for local and national clients. She is a leading public affairs and public relations strategist with a background in political campaigns and corporate affairs.
Carnahan manages numerous clients for RunSwitch, including a multi-state public relations project for a Fortune 500 company. She also runs federal and state public policy campaigns and manages the company’s media buying operations.
“Kaylee and I have worked together since 2012, and her growth as a strategist, manager, and leader in our company has been nothing short of remarkable. Kaylee is results-driven; she does not fail. I call her ‘fire-and-forget’ because once you send her on a mission, there’s a 100 percent chance the job is getting done right,” said RunSwitch Partner and Co-Founder Scott Jennings.
Carnahan has won awards for her public relations and public affairs projects including two MarCom Gold awards in 2016. A 2009 graduate of Western Kentucky University, she worked for Congressman Brett Guthrie before moving onto the campaign trail. Carnahan worked a statewide Texas campaign and then joined Romney for President, where she helped manage a staff of over 150 people in Ohio. She also has experience in Iowa politics, serving as a political aide to Governor Terry Branstad’s reelection committee.
“It is an honor to serve and learn alongside the team of professionals that RunSwitch PR has assembled,” Carnahan said. “Combining my past experiences with RunSwitch PR’s hard-hitting approach has created much success for our clients. I am excited for this next step in my career and look forward to delivering for the clients who trust us with their serious needs.”
Kaylee and her dog “Governor” reside in Louisville and enjoy spending time outdoors, cooking, and visiting her family and friends scattered across the country. She is a 2016 graduate of Leadership Louisville’s Ignite Program and volunteers her time at her church, The Food Literacy Project, and the Kentucky Humane Society.
