Katie Kimel

Account Executive


Last updated on November 7th, 2019

Katie Kimel began her career with Roanoke in 2010 as a Customs Bond Underwriter. In this role, she gained an extensive understanding of the transportation and logistics industry, along with the regulatory sects that govern the international trade community. In 2013, she transitioned to the Marketing department, handling projects and responsibilities that allowed her to share this knowledge with Roanoke’s customer base, primarily through Roanoke’s social media channels, quarterly webinar series, sponsored conferences and events and Roanoke’s own educational outreach platform, KnowledgePort™.

In 2018, Katie accepted a position as Sales and Account Manager and in 2019 was promoted to Account Executive. In this capacity, Katie utilizes her trade and transportation knowledge to assist clients in Michigan, Minnesota and Illinois. Katie’s goal is to be able to save her clients time and frustration when obtaining international and domestic transportation policies, and her efforts are supported by a top-notch service and claims team.

Before joining the Roanoke organization, Katie achieved her Bachelor of Arts degree from Illinois State University. In 2016, she obtained her Master of Science degree in Integrated Marketing Communications (MSIMC) from Roosevelt University. Katie is a member of the International Air Cargo Association of Chicago, the Organization of Women in International Trade – Chicago, the Detroit Customs Brokers and Forwarders Association and various inter-Roanoke committees and groups. She is always on the hunt for programs and certifications that allow her to learn more about the unique, exciting industry we’re in, and pass that knowledge along to her clients.
