Chief Operations Officer
Nicholas Kennedy, our Chief Operations Officer and Project Manager, manages the timely and effective delivery of client deliverables while improving the overall operational efficiency at Rose Strategic Communications. Nick has over 10 years of experience in the music industry where he managed music venues and toured internationally – all prior to attending college.
Once transitioning into college, Nick became the founding President of the Fresno City College chapter of I Will Ride - a student-built advocacy group for the California High-Speed Rail, where he organized and hosted the Fresno City College High-Speed Rail Forum. He later transferred to UC Berkeley, where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business. Following graduation, Nick worked in Risk Consulting for KPMG - one of the “Big 4” accounting firms and a multinational leader in consulting.
In his spare time, Nick enjoys going to concerts, writing and performing music, traveling, and spending time with friends and family. Nick believes that challenges make life interesting, but overcoming those challenges makes life meaningful.
