Kellie Donato


Account Director

During all of her years in the tradeshow industry, Account Manager Kellie Donato has been apart of DesignCentrix’s past and present. Kellie worked with Dennis Fitzgerald, Founder of DesignCentrix, before its inception, and joined the team when he started the business. After taking a hiatus to raise her children, she rejoined the team in 2011 and has been working with clients ever since.

Kellie didn’t expect to get into the tradeshow industry. The field chose her in 1990 when she got hired at Giltspur in Chicago, and she quickly fell in love with her newfound career. She enjoys watching a vision become a reality and has learned to think on her feet and multi-task while on a show site.

When she finds some down time, Kellie spends it with her two children, Gabriella and Frankie. She also enjoys painting with acrylics on canvas and reading period pieces. As a born and raised Chicagoan, Kellie always makes time to keep up with her favorite team, the Chicago Blackhawks.
