Kurt is the executive vice president and a partner at Celtic Inc. Celtic is a full-service advertising and PR firm headquartered in Milwaukee’s Third Ward. For more than 25 years, Celtic has been successfully building and marketing brands for organizations, large and small. Very much in correlation with customer-centric principles, Celtic is based on the core foundation that its customers don’t need an agency; they need an advocate. Over the course of Kurt’s advertising career, which spans two decades, he has worked with a range of brands of all sizes – from world ad spending giant General Motors to a local nonprofit in the Ice Age Trail Alliance, and everything in between. Kurt’s teaching experience includes Carroll University in Waukesha, Wisconsin, where he taught undergraduate advertising courses. He also serves on the board for ADHD America. In his spare time, he enjoys coaching and being outside with his family hiking many of the beautiful trails around the state of Wisconsin. Kurt has a BBA from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and an MBA from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
