2019 Marketer of the Year
Wichita Chamber of Commerce (Non-Profit Category Winner)
As the Marketing & Communications Director for the Wichita Regional Chamber of Commerce, Courtney Sendall works daily on projects that require advanced marketing, communication and public relations skills. She enjoys growing the engagement on the various social media channels she manages and values the relationships throughout the community that she’s developed through her position at the Chamber, where she’s been employed for more than six years.
One of her favorite accomplishments has been rebranding all of the Chamber’s communication tools, including a brand new website that is utilized by the organization’s 1,800 members. She’s won numerous awards for the Chamber’s communication pieces, including the Chamber’s #ILoveWichita social media campaign.
In her spare time, Courtney enjoys traveling with her husband Jeremy and volunteering with nonprofit organizations like Kansas Humane Society, the Alzheimer’s Association, and Make-A-Wish.
Koch Industries (Corporate Category Winner)
Kaylan focuses primarily on storytelling about Koch companies through digital channel-centric content. Specifically, content served on Koch’s websites, newsroom and social media channels. What and whose stories aren’t being told at Koch? She and her team are driven to tell those stories in relevant, visual, compelling ways each day. She’s constantly on the hunt for new content ideas and focused on sharing them in audience-centric ways — continuously experimenting, testing and learning.
In her free time, Kaylan enjoys spending time with her husband, baby girl and two dogs. In between naps and diaper changes, they’re often cheering on the Jayhawks, checking out restaurants around Wichita, supporting Ballet Wichita or catching up on the latest Netflix binge.
Greteman Group (Agency Category Winner)
Jordan Walker serves as Greteman Group digital director. She inspires her team of developers and digital strategists, leading by example. She promotes innovation, smarter thinking and ever-greater audience engagement. This whip-smart millennial simplifies complex digital challenges for less-digital audiences. Her masterful grasp of analytics and data help justify marketing spends and ensure the perfect solution. The results she’s helped achieve have increased clients’ return on investment – and market share. Jordan was named to Greteman Group’s Traction leadership team – designed to strategically shape the agency’s future.
