Kate Bradley Chernis: Founder & CEO of Lately – 048

Kate Bradley Chernis: Founder & CEO of Lately – 048

Today’s Extraordinary Women Radio interview is with Kate Bradley Chernis, the Founder & CEO of Lately. Kate is a former rock ‘n roll disc jockey turned tech CEO, and she’s as real as they come!

Kate shares what it was like to raise $2.2 million in the tech world as a woman, and gives some good advice to my listeners who are raising capital. We talk about marketing that creates real connection and community in business. Kate shares how she listens to her intuition and how important it is to just show up as ourselves. It’s a fun interview and I know you’re going to love this!

As a former marketing agency owner, Kate, initially created the idea for Lately out of spreadsheets for then-client, Walmart. Well, not just Walmart. It was a partnership between Walmart, United Way Worldwide, National Disability Institute, and tens of thousands of local, small business and nonprofit affiliates who were all using her spreadsheet system – because they all had the same problems: a lack of coordination, widespread redundancies, no visibility and no organization. With Kate’s spreadsheet system, they achieved a 130%, three year, year-over-year ROI.

In fact, Kate found similar success with all of her clients, regardless of industry or company size. So, along with one heck of a superhero team, she created Lately to organize the mess, automate repetitive processes and eliminate the “overwhelming” feeling that every marketer she’d ever met had complained about. As a former VP of marketing – I get this. As a CEO of my own company – I really get this. I love Lately.

Prior to founding Lately, Kate served 20 million listeners as Music Director and on-air host at Sirius/XM. She’s also an award-winning radio producer, engineer and voice talent with 25 years of national broadcast communications, brand-building, sales and marketing expertise.
