Carolyn Krieger, Founder, CKC Agency
Carolyn Krieger is the founder of CKC Agency. Her impeccable reputation, unwavering integrity and endless creativity as a public relations powerhouse are the foundation upon which CKC Agency is built. Carolyn is genuine, and the deep, trusted business, client and media relationships she has developed during her 35+ year career transcend the typical. She relishes her role as a sought-after source and sounding board for everyone from corporate leaders to clients, media contacts from the boardroom to the newsroom, and seasoned to young industry professionals.
Early in her career, this Michigan State University communications graduate was one of Detroit’s most prominent, in-demand radio promotion directors, creating iconic contests and garnering local and national publicity at three of metro Detroit’s top-rated radio stations. She was recognized nationally as Outstanding Woman in Radio Mid-Management by the American Women in Radio and Television. Carolyn also received the prestigious honor of being inducted into the National Association of Professional Women 2015-2016 Woman of the Year Circle. In addition, she was honored as a top woman leader by the Michigan Business and Professional Association, receiving its 2018 “Leadership in the Workplace” award, and was named an “Esteemed Woman of Michigan” in 2018.
Every now and then, if you’re lucky, you cross paths professionally with someone and the connection almost instantly transcends business. That has been my experience with Carolyn Krieger . Her performance for us at Garden Fresh Gourmet has been absolutely first rate, but our relationship with her is more than that. She is truly a friend to our company, truly something special.

Her expertise in generating positive press and big buzz has resulted in hundreds (and hundreds!) of print, broadcast and online articles, features, stories and segments. And it is one of the reasons why CKC Agency’s client roster has always been referral-based.
Carolyn’s life has always followed a path of synchronicity. She embraces every challenge by finding “the gift” in each situation. For Carolyn, personal friendships, business introductions and client relationships fall seamlessly into place. There is a sign that perfectly captures Carolyn’s philosophy of life as well as CKC Agency’s belief about business that hangs on a wall at our offices: “Work hard and be nice.”
