2011 15-to-Watch: Kelly Kalmar

When Kelly Kalmar wasn’t volunteering to help the city of Pittsburgh win the bid to be the 2012 host city of the One Young World global youth leadership summit, a Euro RSCG initiative, she was working to introduce client Bayer MaterialScience’s new EcoCommerical Building (ECB) business unit. In addition to gaining strong coverage of the launch event, Kalmar’s efforts resulted in 10 businesses signing on in the first six months, from the process of forming an ECB Council. —MZ
