KWI Communications’ CEO Leah Gladu has purchased the agency from founder, Ken Willis, and his daughter and co-owner Celia Willis. Leah has been with KWI for nearly ten years and has served in several leadership roles during this time, including President (October 2020–February 2022) and VP, Strategic Communications and Partnerships (May 2017–October 2020). In close partnership with Ken and Celia, Leah has been instrumental in helping build and grow KWI during its transition from a niche internal communications agency to a people-centric consulting firm focused on a top-down approach to developing culture and community.
As new owner, Leah will continue to lead the company as CEO. She is committed to the agency’s long-term success, including the success of its employees and clients. Ken built KWI with relationships at the core, and that will remain the same under Leah’s ownership. With Leah at the helm, KWI will continue to bring to life innovative programs that drive lasting results for some of the country’s most reputable and vital companies.
