What do you like about being an investor in Greater Louisville Inc.?

As a company with 3 decades of history, but new to the Louisville Community, GLI has been a great conduit to new relationships in the local business community.

How does your organization engage in the community?

As our company has prospered, so we’ve discovered many ways to “give back” to our community – we’re deeply woven into the fabric of the communities we live and work in. Annually, we sponsor more than 150 events, donating well over $500,000 to groups and organizations, and take pride in knowing our contributions enable them to provide greater benefits to our community.

How can people engage with your organization?

Prestige’s Director of AV Services for Louisville Kathleen Kronauer is a great starting point. She oversees our partnership with Kentucky Venues and has been an active member of the local arts and event community for since 1994. Kathryne Gardette, our Engagement Ambassador is also a great liaison to our sponsorship and community partnerships.
