jade branson


Jade Branson's interest in the hospitality and events industries has always been evident: she got her start in a JW Marriott restaurant, served as a volunteer at Circuit of the Americas and went to school for meeting and event planning. After working as an independent contractor handling onsite event management projects around Austin, the 2017 ILEA Rising Star nominee joined the Kennedy team as an account and marketing coordinator -- a role that requires her to wear many hats. From social management to CRM upkeep and new business development, she uses her creativity and drive to keep multiple plates spinning as she supports our creative director and helps grow our brand. 

Hailing from New Mexico, Jade spends her free time enjoying live music, Zilker dates with her pup and running Town Lake. Her favorite part about living in Austin is the great food!
