About Kim Martin, founder and CEO of Ascendancy Group

The architect of an executive career that has taken her from top sales leadership roles, to P&L accountability for a multimillion-dollar business, to leading strategy for a multibillion-dollar media company, Kim has ushered companies into new phases of brand relevance, consumer engagement, operational agility, and award-winning execution. She eagerly puts her first-hand expertise to work in navigating clients through times of complexity, ambiguity, change, and growth.

In 2015, after serving for two years as a strategic advisor to the CEO of AMC Networks, Kim was recruited to join the Meredith Corporation as the Chief Strategy Officer, then as the Chief Brand Officer with influence

across the enterprise’s 26 legacy and digital media brands. She led the way in contemporizing their brands—a strategic initiative that yielded increased engagement across young female consumers and elevated annual revenue.

Kim holds an M.B.A. from Georgia State University and a B.S. in political science from Georgia College and State University. A small-town-turned-big-city gal, Kim is married to an artsy New England guy. Together,

they are the parents of two accomplished young women and enjoy their New York City access to great food, walks through Central Park, lots of indie films and a renewed commitment to health and wellness.
