Christie Zielinski is a Vice President with KemperLesnik, leading the agency’s consumer-focused accounts. A 20 year-plus PR agency vet, she has a unique perspective thanks to experience that spans just about every industry – from work with clients like Aon and Protiviti to the NFL and Brunswick. Christie loves that every day in an agency is different – and sometimes really unexpected — and couldn’t imagine doing anything else. A native of Toledo, Ohio, she still imports her kielbasa from Stanley’s Market (nothing in Chicago comes close) and wants to hike part of the Appalachian Trail one day. Christie is an Ohio University graduate and serves on the board of PRSA Chicago.
