All About Pat

Pat Kelly Image

Pat’s illustrious career has been focused on conceiving, designing and implementing corporate identity campaigns and promotions through creative Public Relations, Advertising and Marketing vehicles across all channels and mediums for more than three decades.

Pat’s career began in the fashion industry where she worked for such clients as Sony and Wrangler. Making a move to the shipping industry in 1980, her company (Kelly Media Associates) oversaw the Advertising, Marketing and Public Relations for Yang Ming Lines, an international shipping company headquartered in Taiwan. In 2008, as part of a company-wide consolidation, Yang Ming restructured, and the Marketing and Public Relations activities were returned to Taiwan headquarters, while she continued as their advertising agency.

A well-seasoned media negotiator, she has continued in that role to this day.

Pat is also proud to have represented the last remaining American shipping fleet, Farrell Lines, for mostly Marketing and Public Relations, with a moderate advertising program. Eventually, her assigned mission was to position the company for acquisition. Farrell was acquired by P&O Nedlloyd the following year.

Pat isn’t concerned with how a project is labeled. Her only objective is to research, recommend and implement the most creative, cost-effective communication tools capable of achieving our clients’ desired goals.

In 2018, Kelly Media Associates (KMA) and sPowell Associates (SPA) merged, finally cementing a unique business relationship begun more than 30 years earlier—with joint marketing, PR and advertising promotions created for the container shipping industry. The formal combination of KMA’s creative experience, recognition in the industry, skill sets and in-depth industry knowledge combined with SPA’s creative solutions, award-winning design skills and digital marketing capabilities has benefited both agency’s clients immensely.
