Kelly Gaunt is the Founder and Creative Director of The Marketing Bungalow. With 20 years’ experience in B2B and B2C sales and marketing, Kelly saw the need to provide business at all levels with a boutique marketing, design and communications supplier. Kelly was passionate about building a marketing business that didn’t deliver their services in a ‘smoke and mirrors’ agency format where offshore freelancers, juniors, administrators and interns complete the work. The Marketing Bungalow employs a team of full-time marketing, design and sales experts who each bring a unique talent to the table. Kelly is all about bringing together smart people who want to support and learn from each other.
Kelly holds a Bachelor of Business: Marketing and is a professional member of the Australian Marketing Institute holding a Certified Practicing Marketer accreditation. She speaks regularly at Just Cuts events nationally and has been invited to speak at various events for Signarama, McGrath, St George Sutherland Shire Community College, Franchise Council of Australia and Shire Women.
Her corporate background has seen her work with major Australian and International companies including Zodiac Marine & Pool, Just Cuts Franchising, Clark Rubber and the Commonwealth Bank.
Kelly believes that a strong understanding of marketing and a practical approach to its theory provides the ability to achieve results across a diverse range of industries and categories. She applies a refreshing balance of practicality, creativity and strategy to each project and brand she partners with.
