Katie Redfearn

Marketing Consultant/Entertainment Coordinator
katieA true Carolina girl, Katie grew up in Hickory, NC, and after vacationing for many years with her family in Charleston, SC, she decided to make a move and call Charleston home!

Katie graduated from the College of Charleston with a degree in Business Administration and Marketing. With more than 10 years of experience in media advertising and B2B sales, it’s her mission to help local business owners get results. Along with helping businesses market their brand, Katie also works with many local, regional, and national promoters to support many of the concerts and events in Charleston.

Katie is a mother of a furry, 4-legged baby named Radley, and loves taking him to the beach or to the park. There’s also a good chance you’ll find Katie supporting live music, rooting on the Carolina Panthers, or shooting a game of pool.
