Katharine Ames

PR & Marketing

Katharine first began her relationship with The Indigo Road Hospitality Group in 2009 as their account manager while working at a boutique, lifestyle PR agency. She continued to work with their team as the company thoughtfully grew to include more restaurants and new markets.

With more than twelve years in the lifestyle PR sector, Katharine has a strong enthusiasm for the food, beverage, travel and wellness industries. Katharine has successfully led operations, client strategy, communications and new business development in addition to media and marketing fundamentals. Her well-rounded approach has helped to secure national placements for clients, while also ensuring they continued to operate and execute strategic marketing initiatives. In her time in the agency world, Katharine transitioned from account manager to Vice President of Public Relations, successfully exceeding client expectations each step of the way.

Always an enthusiast of fine dining and traveling, Katharine combined her communication and hospitality management studies from the College of Charleston to specialize in public relations for the restaurant and hotel industries. When not working, she spends her time in mom mode: carpooling, scheduling, and refereeing. Katharine lives in Atlanta with her husband (who she met at an Indigo Road restaurant!), their two children, and golden-doodle Betty.
