GREENCREST President Kelly Borth has been named to the Board of Directors of the American Heart Association. She is serving on the steering committee of the Women’s Heart Health Initiative.
“I am excited to serve an organization that is, literally, so close to my heart,” Borth said. “I was shocked to learn that heart disease is the number-one killer of women and want to spread the word on the importance of heart health to as many women as possible.”
Borth started GREENCREST, a full-service marketing, advertising, and public relations firm, in 1990. Since then, the firm has grown into one of central Ohio’s leading agencies, winning many awards for its work.
She has volunteered with numerous non-profit organizations, taking a leadership role in local charities, business associations and municipal government agencies. She is a current or former board member of the Advertising Federation of Columbus, the Jefferson Water & Sewer District, the American Heart Association, Friends of the Columbus Public Library, St. Pius Parish Council, the Heinzerling Foundation and Shepherd’s Corner at Dominican Acres.
Borth is a regular speaker for the Small Business Administration and is actively involved with the Public Relations Society of America, the Roundtable of Agency Management Presidents, Entrepreneur Exchange, Industry & Technology Council and Business Marketing Association.
Her efforts and involvements have been recognized by numerous organizations. The Columbus Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners selected her as its 2003 Member of the Year. Business First named her as one of the city’s top “Forty under 40” up and coming leaders.
