Kids Included Together (KIT) Adds Marketing Leader to Fuel Inclusive Practices Training Mission

SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) April 22, 2015

Kids Included Together is pleased to announce that Tammy Bailey has joined the organization as Chief Marketing Officer. Bailey will serve as the first Chief Marketing Officer at the San Diego based non-profit, supporting and accelerating their mission of ensuring that children of all abilities are welcomed and included in their communities. In this newly-created strategic marketing role, Bailey will work to expand the adoption of KITs recreational and developmental training programs centered around inclusive practice, primarily engaging and partnering with out of school child care and youth development programs. She will also lead some key projects such as enhancing the best in class online learning center, lead generation for increased earned revenues and charitable contributions, website redesign, advertising and public relations all with the goal of supporting the KIT inclusive mindset.

Bailey brings 25 years of corporate marketing success for large organizations like Coca-Cola, Mattel, Jack in the Box and most recently restaurant chain Souplantation/Sweet Tomatoes, where she served as Chief Marketing Officer, leading store reimaging and brand repositioning efforts. Bailey also sits on the board of directors of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego.

Torrie Dunlap (@TorrieDunlap), Chief Executive Officer, said, Kids Included Together has made great strides, but we recognize that in order to make more progress toward our mission of ensuring every child is welcomed and included in their community, regardless of their ability, we need to do a much better job of telling our story and getting the word out to the right people. We could not be more excited to have someone with Tammys expertise join our company.

Bailey added, I am so thrilled to be a part of such an incredible organization. Joining KIT is an exciting opportunity to take my for-profit marketing experience and bring that skill set to a mission that I think is truly inspiring, timely and important. As a mother of 3 children who attend an inclusive elementary school, I have seen first-hand the benefits. My children are more loving, kind and accepting of the differences of others because of their daily experiences.
