Jennifer Keller, community marketing director for Derby, said she was pleased enough to attend the Wichita American Marketing Association banquet last week as a finalist for Marketer of the Year.
“I don’t know who nominated me, but it was nice to be nominated by my peers.”
Then, she won.
“I couldn’t believe it,” Keller said.
“To win an award like that is pretty special.”
The Kansas native, who has spent most of her life in Wichita, received an advertising degree from Wichita State University, but her career path has had more of a marketing and public relations focus, particularly for nonprofits.
Keller’s goal is to one day lead a nonprofit agency.
