Kim Sirois Pita began her career writing speeches and correspondence for accomplished business and political leaders, including U.S. Congresswoman Barbara B. Kennelly.
Today, Kim delivers her own inspirational and transformational messages to audiences across Connecticut through her consulting practice, Pita Peaces.
Kim is a transformation adviser and in-house brand consultant, sharing wisdom gained from sometimes messy life experiences. She helps industry pioneers, small businesses and family-owned companies in transition get from a place of chaos and uncertainty to a position of harmony and prominence. She does this by building nurturing cultures and operational structures internally, and delivering meaningful and relevant stories externally.
Kim delivers engaging talks on topics such as life transformation, finding mental clarity, understanding generational differences, best practices in multicultural marketing, personal branding on social media channels, building thriving and motivating work cultures and marketing plan construction.
After working on Capitol Hill, Kim co-founded and grew The Pita Group, a multi-million dollar marketing agency for 16 years. While at The Pita Group, she developed a thriving company culture, which fueled employees for greatness. She also nurtured successful relationships with clients ranging from Fortune 50 companies to state agencies, from small businesses to non-profit organizations.
Kim currently serves as chair of the CBIA Small Business Advisory Council and vice chair of Mental Health Connecticut Board of Directors. Throughout her career, she has served on multiple Boards of Directors, including the Connecticut Business & Industry Association (CBIA), Girl Scouts of Connecticut, Hartford Children’s Theatre, Rocky Hill Chamber of Commerce and Rebuilding Together Hartford.
An advocate for empowering women, Kim is an active member of the Connecticut Women’s Council, Senior Executive Women’s Network and the United Way Women’s Leadership Council, where she serves on the membership committee.
She received the coveted 40 Under 40 “overachiever” Award from the Hartford Business Journal at the age 31. And, she was the youngest to receive the Alumni Achievement Award from Framingham State University at age 37. But the honor she’s most proud of is the prestigious Women Redefining Media Leadership Badge from Girl Scouts of Connecticut that she earned in 2014.
Kim is writing a memoir, Split Ends: A Tale of 2 Crazy Sisters, which chronicles how she flipped her life right side up following her sister Kelly’s death in 2011. She expects to self-publish the book in late 2016. Early chapters can be found on Kim’s blog @ peaceofpita.com.
