Kim’s passion for making AfterShokz a household name is inspiring, and she takes pride in fueling the team with positive energy daily. As the publicist honored with introducing the brand to the industry and buying public back in 2011, she’s been tied to the company’s growth from day one and is personally committed to changing the way people use headphones.
Kim’s career in the consumer technology industry started one week after graduating from University of Delaware, at NAPCO Media, managing marketing and events for several arms of the trade publishing house—with the CE group capturing her heart. Two years later she made a cross-country move, from Philadelphia, PA to Phoenix, AZ for the opportunity to handle public relations and communications for DBL Distributing Inc. Prior to DBL’s sale to Ingram Micro, she moved just a few zip codes away to OmniMount, to serve as the brand manager for both the consumer and commercial divisions in the company’s prime. In 2009, a personal move took her to Texas, and social4media—the boutique public relations firm she co-founded—was born.
As the CMO of AfterShokz, Kim oversees the brand’s global marketing strategy. She’s guided the course from its introduction, helping AfterShokz to find its place in a crowded headphone landscape—now, proudly and confidently, the leading bone conduction headphone manufacturer globally.
