About Caitlin Braam
Taking a bit of a non-traditional route, Caitlin Braam began her career as a broadcast journalist in the bustling television newsrooms of the Midwest. Never camera shy, Caitlin delivered daily reports on everything from renewable energy and freak snowstorms to the latest holiday shopping trends and travel deals. Choosing to move on to a career in public relations, Caitlin’s desire for the latest and greatest, superb writing skills and insider knowledge of the media industry set her up for a successful career in PR and marketing.
Caitlin has a knack for telling clients’ stories from a fresh angle and is a devotee of understanding the details from top to bottom. She values building partnerships with her clients to help develop strategic solutions and isn’t shy about asking questions to understand business strategies. Caitlin — who enjoys working with clients with whom she shares a passion — has planned and managed public relations campaigns for a variety of consumer, lifestyle and hospitality clients including Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, Maryhill Winery, Two Beers Brewing, Expedia.com, Savers/Value Village, Zavida Gemstones, Zwaggle.com and more.
In addition to media relations, Caitlin has honed her skills through strategic event planning and execution, ensuring quality events targeting the appropriate audiences. Events under Caitlin’s direction have included: grand opening of the eco-friendly Hyatt at Olive 8 (the first of its kind of Hyatt Hotels & Resorts); unveiling of the newly expanded Hyatt Regency Bellevue second tower in coordination with Bellevue Fashion Week; and most recently, the grand opening of the new Two Beers Brewing tasting room and expanded brewing facility in SoDo.
Prior to moving to the Emerald City, Caitlin represented ABC affiliate KSFY-TV in Sioux Falls, SD as an daily on-air television reporter. Previously, Caitlin worked for a number of notable news desks in Minnesota, including the KARE 11 Today Show, FOX 9 Sports and WCCO’s Special Projects Unit. She kicked off her career with a brief stint with the Minnesota Broadcasters Association, where she helped launch the popular television show “Access Minnesota.”
Caitlin graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor of Arts in Broadcast Journalism and minor in Business Management. Having lived in a total of nine states (so far!), Caitlin quickly fell in love with the Pacific Northwest and all it has to offer. An avid hiker and outdoor enthusiast, she enjoys exploring the full bounty of the Pacific Northwest including the area’s hottest new restaurants and award-winning wineries and microbreweries.
