Bellmont Partners’ Kalli Plump Named a Rising Young Professional

We’re excit­ed to share that Kalli Plump, a Bell­mont Part­ners senior account exec­u­tive, has been named a Ris­ing Young Pro­fes­sion­al by Finance & Com­merce. The award rec­og­nizes those who have demon­strat­ed lead­er­ship, con­tributed to their com­mu­ni­ty and suc­cess­ful­ly achieved pos­i­tive out­comes ear­ly in their career – all attrib­ut­es that per­fect­ly describe Kalli.

Kalli plays a sig­nif­i­cant role on sev­er­al client teams. One notable exam­ple of her lead­er­ship is her work with client Min­neso­ta Fire­fight­er Ini­tia­tive (MnFIRE). Com­bin­ing her pas­sions for pub­lic health and pub­lic affairs, Kalli has led Bell­mont Part­ners’ efforts to sup­port MnFIRE for three years, most notably over the past 18 months, as she coor­di­nat­ed a mas­sive, tar­get­ed op-ed cam­paign and media and social media ini­tia­tive. In July 2021, MnFIRE’s effort result­ed in the most com­pre­hen­sive fire­fight­er-well-being leg­is­la­tion in the nation. This leg­is­la­tion includes $4 mil­lion a year to pro­vide Minnesota’s 20,000 fire­fight­ers with crit­i­cal health resources. To date, the Home­town Heroes Assis­tance Pro­gram has sup­port­ed hun­dreds of peer sup­port calls and vis­its with men­tal health providers, trained the major­i­ty of the state’s fire­fight­ers on their occu­pa­tion­al health risks, and has paid out near­ly $1 mil­lion in crit­i­cal ill­ness claims.

Kalli’s lead­er­ship extends beyond her day job as well. When she moved back to the Twin Cities in 2019 after sev­er­al years in Ken­tucky, Kalli quick­ly joined the Min­neso­ta Pub­lic Health Asso­ci­a­tion and got involved with its com­mu­ni­ca­tions com­mit­tee. She also vol­un­teers exten­sive­ly through her church – serv­ing in the nurs­ery and help­ing with a recent­ly reset­tled refugee fam­i­ly of 9 from Afghanistan.

We’re hon­ored to have Kalli as a mem­ber of the Bell­mont Part­ners team and are proud to see her accom­plish­ments rec­og­nized by Finance & Com­merce. Con­grat­u­la­tions to Kalli and all the oth­er honorees!
