Customer service is the most important part of what we do here at Corner Booth Media, and Kelli Green knows EXACTLY how to keep a client’s virtual water glasses full. There is a rhythm to business and Kelli keeps perfect time. She is the main point of contact with all of our clients and affectionately refers to herself as the Corner Booth Concierge, as she multitasks schedules, juggles deadlines, keeps all the Corner Booth promises, while simultaneously designing CBM swag, making coffee, offering snacks and cocktails, and just basically bringing joy to anyone around her.

She even answers the phones, sincerely, with “It’s the best day EVER at Corner Booth Media!” Kelli has tons of experience in social media from managing not only her own brand (she is a fantastic and hilarious performer) but also the social media accounts of several successful businesses in the Northwest. She knows what it’s like to walk in our clients’ shoes.
When Kelli Green says she does “all the stuff & things”, she means it.
