THE EPIC EVOLUTION

Carter Waxman

BEIGE ARROW
1991

Kelly began her career in an internship at Carter Waxman Advertising and Public Relations, a prestigious agency in the Silicon Valley. After just 3 months, the company hired her and gave her the opportunity to co-manage one of the company’s accounts. She was 19 years old.

After Kelly graduated college and left Carter Waxman at 24, she was recruited by Walt & Company – another Silicon Valley Public Relations Agency where she worked with emerging technology companies and Fortune 500 companies (including Epson America, Hitachi Data Systems, Oki Semiconductor and Kingston Technologies). It’s here where she further developed her widespread expertise in advanced branding and marketing strategy.

INTUIT

RED ARROW
1998

World leading software company Intuit came knocking, looking for young, hot talent and made Kelly an offer she couldn’t refuse. At just 26, her work with Inuit (where she was responsible for launching Quicken 98, 99 and 2000) was acknowledged by the Association of National Advertisers. She received the Distinguished Award for Professional Development Excellence in Business Building & Managing Brand Equity.

When the dot com boom hit, start-ups were actively seeking innovators to get their brands acquired or poise them for acquisition. Since Kelly had developed a reputation for her keen ability to strategically position companies, align their brands, and generate stellar results. At just 27 years old, Kelly was recruited for a Director position by eVoice, Inc. The company was seeking aggressive talent (most of whom were Ivy League Graduates) that could help them strategically position the company for acquisition. In just 7 months, she repositioned and re-launched the company that was then acquired by AOL Time Warner.

AFTER AN EXTREMELY SUCCESSFUL CORPORATE CAREER AS A BRAND STRATEGIST AND PUBLICIST, KELLY O’NEIL RETIRED FORM CORPORATE AMERICA IN HER LATE TWENTIES AND BEGAN HER ENTREPRENEURIAL JOURNEY.

O’NEIL COMMUNICATIONS

BEIGE ARROW
2001

In 2001, Kelly launched O’Neil Communications, a boutique consulting company that served consumer technology companies and helped them with brand marketing strategy, positioning, and public relations. Kelly’s first client was the infamous Morpheus digital peer-to-peer company where she instantly became the driving force behind the brand marketing and publicity campaign in its battle to legalize digital music. Kelly was a critical component in bringing awareness to the validity of peer-to-peer technology and even lobbied on Capitol Hill where she effectively killed the Howard Berman Bill and created a movement of support for the advancement of this technology platform.

After nearly three years, Morpheus won its lawsuit achieving freedom for digital distribution of content, much in part because of the position and PR campaigns that created a movement under Kelly’s leadership. (Think giving way to platforms like iTunes and Facebook.) At 29, she was awarded a PR Compass Award for Excellence by the Public Relations Society of America for outstanding positioning and campaign work and became a media darling in the press for her work on the account.
