Kylie Porter

Kylie Porter

Director

Out of the Blue Marketing is the business baby of founding Director Kylie Porter. Kylie started Out of the Blue Marketing in 1997, and has held on tight through all of its glorious ups and downs because quite simply, she loves helping her select batch of clients.

Kylie is creative, a little bit quirky, a lot intuitive and most importantly, passionate about business. Rarely flustered and never defeated, Kylie is the master of uncovering the story behind each individual client and marketing to those strengths. Just like the good daughter of a hardware store owner that she is, Kylie knows that success in business is all about construction. She takes the time to plan and build great, long lasting relationships with her clients and puts down solid foundations to ensure business success is enjoyed for years to come.

Because she does not have enough to do in her real job, Kylie (or KP as she is fondly known to many) has a number of community leadership roles – most centred around ensuring the local business community always has a strong voice (read: bossy).

Officially the shortest member of her family thanks to all the growth hormones she feeds her two kids (wait – that’s a joke!), Kylie loves her exercise and has the muscles to prove it.
