About The Founder
Highly motivated and regarded by others as creative, organized and self-directed, great multi-tasker with the ability to persuade others, and a good team player with forward-thinking leadership qualities, Kennette J. Burgess always strives to be “AN ASSET, NOT A LIABILITY!” Kennette’s strength is that she always gets the job done and admits her weakness comes from being a perfectionist to a fault.
Kennette Jannora Burgess is a native of the beautiful island of Bermuda. She has a B.Sc in Sport Management from Winston-Salem State University where she graduated Summa Cum Laude. She also has her MBA from High Point University and was a proud member of the NBMBAA Piedmont Triad Chapter. She felt the best way to cultivate her International Marketing skills after graduation was to remain in the USA and work for an international company that can utilize her background in project management, advertising, merchandising, brand management, event planning, B2B & B2C sales & marketing, and creative development. Therefore, since 2011 she has been an International Product Manager for North Carolina based one-to-one marketing and direct selling global giant SHOP.COM | Market America managing and launching products globally in Australia, Europe and Canada while also successfully launching business operations in the United Kingdom and Mexico. She has been responsible for managing MA brands for celebrities such as Carmelo and La La Anthony and Scottie Pippen. While living in NC, Kennette balances her professional career between the USA full-time launching promotional campaigns and in Bermuda part-time with her marketing clients.
Prior to working for SHOP.COM she has worked for The Salvation Army, NASCAR, a professional ABA basketball team, in the Bermuda International business sector, and as Marketing Manager for a Bermuda advertising agency.

However, while living in North Carolina, she manages the marketing remotely of Bermuda’s Hamilton Parish Youth Sports Program and her father’s Old School singing group ‘The U-Fonics’, among others as she takes on clients as a Marketing Consultant.
