Kimberly Strenk, founder and principal of public-relations consulting firm Five Two SQ, is a natural storyteller with an ability to see beyond the surface and uncover the less obvious and oftentimes more compelling narrative. With a PR career that has spanned two decades, she has represented some of the most innovative and respected brands in the retail space, including Nordstrom and Williams Sonoma. As an insider charged with growing established brands and reshaping those in need of a refresh, she has been described by many as a consummate builder. Strenk enjoys giving back and has put her storytelling skills to work as a board member with the Leander Independent School District Educational Excellence Foundation. Most recently, she was asked to join one of Central Texas’ most respected and longest-serving community nonprofits, YWCA Greater Austin. This West Coast native and San Francisco transplant, along with her husband and three daughters, proudly call Austin home.
